Take a high-rolling gambler and pair him with a puritanical missionary. Then throw in a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a crap game manager who is anything but straight or narrow. Mix it up with the brassy music of Frank Loesser (including “A Bushel and a Peck” and “Luck Be a Lady”), and you have what many consider the perfect musical comedy.
Guys and Dolls is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com

Set in 1930s New York City, this play tells the stories of “Guys,” many of them gamblers, and “Dolls,” many of them chorus girls. The stories involve gambling, some drinking, and the relationships between the “Guys” and “Dolls.” However, it is generally very tame and is suitable for all audiences.
