Based on the legendary, multi-award-winning, musical comedy classic about rolling the dice and falling in love under the lights of Broadway. Book by Abe Burrows and Jo Sterling, Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser, and directed by Jeanna Van Dyke, this show is sure to please crowds of all ages.
Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap 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 without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.
Guys and Dolls JR. is sponsored in part by a grant by the Forest Grove Public Arts Commission and through C.A.S.T. (Children’s After School Theatre). “I’ve always believed the stage to be the perfect ‘play’ ground for the imagination!” Jeanna Van Dyke, director of CAST.
