First performed on Broadway in 1950, and later turned into a film in 1955, ‘Guys and Dolls’ is a popular musical based on the Damon Runyon books of the New York underworld. It tells the story of a gambler Nathan Detroit, who runs a “floating” crap game, much to the disgust of his long-suffering fiancee of 14 years, the Hot Box nightclub singer, Adelaide Adams. To raise the money to pay for a venue for his crap game, Detroit bets $1000 on what he believes is a sure thing. Sky Masterson, a high-rolling, suave gambler boasts that he could have any girl he wants. So Nathan bets him that he can’t get the local “Save a Soul” missionary, Sarah Brown, to come to dinner with him in Havana. Since she’s reluctant, Sky in turn guarantees that he will provide 12 genuine sinners for her Midnight prayer meeting in return for dinner. In order to win his bet, Sky needs sinners, Sarah needs to save her mission, Adelaide wants to turn her 14 year engagement into a wedding and Nathan is just trying to keep his crap game afloat and Adelaide happy, while not getting arrested by the local cop or shot by a visiting gangster.
Guys and Dolls will run on the main stage of The Village Theater at Cherry Hill from April 15-17 and April 22-24, 2016, with Friday and Saturday performances at 8 p.m. and Sunday performances at 2 p.m.
