Logan County will see how a “bushel and a peck” of students from Students for the Arts “can do” when the students present their production of Guys and Dolls JR. beginning date, it was announced today by Freddie Gershon, CEO of Music Theatre International (MTI).
Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls follows Salvation Army crusaders and high rollers from the streets of Times Square to Havana and back again. Nathan Detroit, who is permanently-engaged to psychosomatic showgirl Miss Adelaide, will be forced to fold Detroit’s Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game unless he wins a bet from slick high roller Sky Masterson. When Sky gambles that he can woo any “doll” Nathan counters that Sky will not be able to convince an up-right but up-tight missionary named Sarah to go to Havana with him. Sarah finds the rakish Sky very resistible at first, but eventually both Sky and Sarah teach each other a lesson on winning.
“From Sky Masterson, Miss Adelaide and Sarah, to their fellow gamblers, performers and crusaders, Guys and Dolls is filled with so many well-loved characters. We applaud these students for their hard work in creating the world of this musical and the characters that populate it. We think they deserve a standing ovation from the community for all of their work,” says Gershon.
