Canby High theater departments production of Guys & Dolls hits the stage this weekend
The Canby High School Theater Company will present the Tony Award winning musical "Guys and Dolls," March 7-15 at the Richard R. Brown Fine Arts Center.
Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiance, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game. Featuring standards such as "Luck Be a Lady Tonight," "I've Never Been In Love Before," and "A Bushel and a Peck," it is the perfect show for the whole family.
Shows will be Friday at 7 p.m.; Saturday at 2 and 7 p.m.; and Thursday-Saturday, March 13-15, all at 7 p.m.
Tickets are $6 for adults, $4 for students and Canby High Students are free with their ASB card. Tickets are available at Cutsforths Thriftway and at the door.
