Directed by TITG veteran Darren Hurley and set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy – considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy – GUYS AND DOLLS 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.
Songs include: Fugue for Tinhorns, A Bushel and a Peck, I’ll Know, Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat and Luck Be a Lady.
Performance dates are April 25 through May 10, Friday & Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday Matinees at 2:30 p.m. April 27 through May 11.

2014 CAST Summer Camps
“I’ve always believed the stage to be the perfect ‘play’ ground for the imagination!”
Jeanna Van Dyke, Director of CAST
Started by Don Cleland, Theatre In The Grove’s Summer theatre camps have been serving young actors for over 25 years. The students meet for three and one half hours each day for two weeks. During that time, the actors will be exploring the art of the stage through theatre games, exercises and improvisation and creating their own original play. On the last day of the session, the theatre will hold a free public performance featuring the work of the young actors.
