January 31 and Februrary 1-2, 2013. Musical GUYS AND DOLLS. Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. Synopsis: New York, the city that never sleeps. And within it, all human life. From the chorus girl, to the gambler to the missionary - all of them caught up in the teeming vitality of the streets. Into this setting we inject: Sergeant Sarah Brown, of the Save a Soul Mission, vainly trying to spread the Word, and make a difference to the sin and depravity of the streets. Adelaide, the showgirl, desperate to leave behind her seemingly glamorous lifestyle for a white picket fence and roses round the door. Nathan Detroit, trying to find yet another new location for his floating dice game, keeping just one short step ahead of the law and Adelaide. The gamblers themselves, eager for just one more roll, for that winning streak which will keep them ahead of the game. And the coolest, highest roller of them all, Sky Masterson, who would bet on anything that would turn him a profit – until he meets his match!
