The Theater comes to life on Thursday, March 29, through Saturday, March 31, with the hustle and swing of a stylized 1940s-era New York City as the Wolverine Players present “Guys and Dolls,” the Tony Award-winning musical based on the story and characters of Damon Runyon, book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows and music and lyrics by Frank Loesser.
The Wolverine Theater Players are in their fifth year and have multiple Halo awards and recognition for previous shows including: “Into The Woods”, “Grease”, and “West Side Story."
“Guys and Dolls” tells the story of a group of gamblers, including Nathan Detroit, who are looking for a place in mythical New York City to hold a floating dice game. The show follows the courtship of Save a Soul Officer Sarah Brown and gambler Sky Masterson.
It is often described as being the most perfectly written musical comedy ever for its innumerable catchy tunes and witty one-liners. Stephen Dest, the OHS musical director, describes working with his cast of talented OHS performers as truly delightful. Mr. Dest states, “I am very proud of all the hard work that each and every person involved with this show has put forth.”
Peformances of "Guys and Dolls" will be held at 7:30 p.m. tonight and at the same time on Friday, March 30; it will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 31. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for students and seniors.
