Project Description

Jack Bradford, Director

Guys and Dolls Jr has great songs, characters, comedy and drama. This is our second production of Guys and Dolls. Some of the same actors are performing in this production. I want to thank the crew of helpers and technicians who have worked tirelessly to make this production a success. The cast have been wonderful to work with, as have the parents and production team.

We all wish to thank the Clontarf Beach Baptist Church and Pastor Barry Forrester for their use of the Church hall for rehearsals. We are also pleased to be working again with the Redcliffe Cultural Centre staff in our third major musical.

 

Synopsis

Guys and Dolls is a comedic story of love, money and salvation in New York. All the hot gamblers are in town and they’re all depending on Nathan Detroit and his two cohorts Nicely-Nicely Johnson and Benny Southstreet to set up this week’s incarnation of “The Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game in New York”. The only problem is, he needs $1000 to get the place. Nathan makes a $1000 bet with Sky Masterson that he cannot take Sarah Brown, 0 Sergeant at the Save-a-Soul Mission to Havana for a day. Sarah, who is short on sinners for her mission, goes on
the trip with Sky’s promise that he will provide her with sinners for the next mission meeting. In the meantime, Nathan is constantly trying to stay one step ahead of his fiancee, Miss Adelaide, who wants Nathan to marry her after a decade-long engagement but will not marry him unless he gives up his gambling.
