Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre’s “Guys and Dolls” Opens Sat Nov 3 in Pleasanton’s Firehouse Arts Center

October 29, 2018

PLEASANTON, CA–Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre’s Guys and Dolls opens Saturday November 3, 2018 at the Firehouse Arts Center in Pleasanton, and continues November 3, 9, 10, 16, 17 at 8:00 pm and November 4, 11, 18 at 2:00 pm. Guys and Dolls ran for 1,200 performances after opening on Broadway in 1950 and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks and Oliviers.

“Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler, Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.” (source)

This show will delight those seeing it for the first time as well as those seeing it again. This exceptionally strong cast will entertain you with lots of laughs, well-choreographed dance numbers and extremely talented voices that harmonize beautifully with some of the most memorable show numbers of all time. Familiar showstoppers include: “Luck Be a Lady”, “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat”, “A Bushel and a Peck” and “Adelaide’s Lament”.
