New York City, 1951… high-betting gambler Sky Masterson (Jordan Guyton) has just rolled into town, and is looking for some action. He finds it when his old friend Nathan Detroit (Jonathan Swindle), pressured by an impending dice game and his longsuffering fiancée Adelaide (Paige Smith), bets him one-thousand dollars that he cannot take Salvation Army officer Sarah Brown (Grace Gardner) with him on a trip to Havana.
Sky naturally accepts, but he finds out he may have bitten off more than he can chew when Sarah proves to be more than a match for his suave charms. As the two butt heads, however, they find that, in spite of their vastly different lifestyles, they have more in common than either of them could have ever imagined.
“As always, I’m amazed at the talent that is here in Cleveland,” director Shirley Pace said.
“Guys and Dolls features singing, dancing, and some of the best acting in town! It’s hard to remember that they’re only in high school! The cast sends you back in time to when right and wrong were easier to distinguish, and the guy always go the girl.”
Guys and Dolls will be accompanied by a live orchestra, featuring musicians from across Bradley County, both young and old.
The musical will be performed at Cleveland High School’s Betsy Vines Memorial Theatre.
There will be four evening performances on Thursday, Friday, April 2 and April 4, 7 nightly, and two matinees April 2 and April d at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students, and are available at the door or by calling Cleveland High School at (423)-478-1113.
