You can bring food and eat it on the lawn. Food & beverages are available for purchase but it's a bit expensive.

Good travelling production of a great show. There was some trouble with sound early on (too loud with echos) in the house but quickly got better.

Description

Considered one of the finest musical comedies ever written, this Tony Award-winning musical is packed with one unforgettable song after another. Featuring “Luck be a Lady,” “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat,” “If I Were a Bell,” and other time-honored classics. Depression-era New York City comes to life on stage as a mob of crooks, cops, and Christians gamble on love, greed and salvation.

 

Nathan Detroit, owner of the oldest established, permanent floating craps game in New York, is in a bind. The police are putting on the heat, and he can’t find a location for the next game, while his longstanding girlfriend Adelaide is pressuring him to get married after 14 years together.

When professional gambler Sky Masterson, on his way to Havana, brags he could get any doll to accompany him on the trip, Detroit challenges him to woo Sergeant Sarah Brown, of the Save-a-Soul Mission downtown.

A seemingly impossible match, Masterson and Brown fall in love despite their glaringly different lifestyle choices, but their happiness is put in jeopardy by the schemes of Detroit. Guys and Dolls is a fast-paced, fun musical for the entire family based on the stories by Damon Runyon.
