ARHS presents “Guys and Dolls”

ARHS Gonk Stage is excited to present Guys and Dolls November 17, 18, and 19 at 7 PM in the ARHS auditorium. Guys and Dolls is a family-friendly classic musical comedy that is often thought of as the perfect musical theater production. It has been staged around the world countless times since its original Broadway run in 1950, most recently in a 2022 Kennedy Center revival concert. “Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.” Featuring classic, well known songs like “Luck be a Lady,” Guys and Dolls is sure to be an event everyone in the local community can enjoy. The cast and crew features more than 50 ARHS students! Tickets are $10 for students and $15 for adults. Tickets can be purchase online
