August 2 – 19, 2018

Jump into a colorful world of underground dice-slinging, glitzy showgirls, and high-stakes romance in one of America’s most enduring musical comedies. In mythical 1950s New York City, career gambler Sky Masterson makes the bet of a lifetime to win the heart of “Save-A-Soul” missionary Sarah Brown while long-suffering nightclub star Adelaide laments foot-dragging beau Nathan Detroit’s 14-year failure to tie the knot. Big, brassy, and timelessly exuberant, Guys and Dolls is rich with beloved show tunes (“Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ The Boat,” “If I Were A Bell,” “Luck Be A Lady”) and old-fashioned Broadway fun.

A Musical Fable of Broadway Based on a Story and Characters of DAMON RUNYON
Music and Lyrics by FRANK LOESSER • Book by ABE BURROWS

Run time is approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes, including one 20-minute intermission.

Performances held at Deb Fennell Auditorium 9000 SW Durham Rd., Tigard, OR
