From Guys chasing dolls
To folks in mission halls.
From guys chasing lady luck
In search of a fast buck,
To mission dolls following their vocation
Impulsively heading on sudden vacation.
From the Big Apple and all its sights
To hot and sultry Cuban nights…..
Guys and Dolls has it all!
Last night’s performance of the 2015 Dominican school production of “Guys and Dolls” went down a treat with a packed school assembly hall audience.
The cast transported a rapt audience to the “Devil’s own city, the devil’s own streets” of 1950s New York City. We first meet “good old reliable Nathan Detroit” (Conor Molloy) and his gambling acolytes in search of lady luck. Nathan accepts the dare of making a bet with Sky Masterson (Timothy Davidson) much to the chagrin of his long suffering fiancée of fourteen years, the nightclub singer Adelaide Abernathy ( Anna Warke) whose mission is to finally marry Nathan. Meanwhile, Sarah Brown( Ellen Duguid) on her own personal crusade to “ convert Broadway all by myself” is the unwitting victim of a bet taken by Sky that he can lure her to Havana.
Will Sarah lose her heart or will Sky lose his marker?
Will Adelaide shake off her lingering cold and walk Nathan down the aisle?
How will Nicely Nicely, Benny, Rusty and Harry the Horse cope when Big Jule arrives from Chicago with his loaded dice?
Will Arvide Abernathy manage to bring enough sinning souls to the mission hall to its survival?
All will be revealed at tonight’s special Gala performance of “Guys and Dolls”.
A limited number of tickets are available for tonight’s production which will be in special memory of Mrs Rosaleen Corrigan.
Proceeds from tonight’s show, programme sale and raffle will go to the Chest, Heart and Stroke Charity, the charity nominated by Rosaleen’s family.
We look forward to seeing you there.
