First show is March 13 in old middle school auditorium
LYNDEN — “Guys & Dolls” is the production by Lynden High School performing arts students opening at 7 p.m. Friday, March 13. The venue is the Judson Hall auditorium at 516 Main St. (old middle school property)
Set in Damon Runyon’s fictional New York City post-World War II, “Guys and Dolls” is a kooky, romantic comedy featuring catchy music and lyrics by Frank Loesser.
Nathan Detroit, master gambler and endearing romantic, is desperate to save his reputation and secure the cash to set up the biggest “oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York” while the authorities breathe down his neck. Meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years and have yet to set a wedding date. Nathan turns to a fellow high-rolling gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough for his game. Sky, a confident loner by nature who insists “(A doll) must always take second place to aces back-to-back,” ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result of an outrageous bet with Nathan.
This journey of the heart takes the audience from busy Times Square to a colorful cafe in Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City. It’s also a fun, toe-tapping and crowd-pleasing classical comedy.
Show dates will be March 13, 14, 20 and 21 at 7 p.m., March 15 and 22 at 3 p.m.
Tickets are available only at the door starting one hour prior to a show. It’s general seating only.
Adults are $10, students and seniors (age 62+) $5. Payment must be by cash and checks only, please.
This production is directed by Tina Miller, conducted by Austin McCombs, with choreography by Ashlie Blaske, costumes by Kim Silva and sets led by Bob Miller.
March 13 is Alumni Night. All alumni of LHS productions of the past are invited to stay for a special reception after the show.
