CMU Theatre presents music theatre classic "Guys and Dolls"

While plans for the renovation of Robinson Theatre and the building of a brand new university theatre are underway, CMU Theatre continues to produce high-quality entertainment in the current Robinson Theatre. October 20-29, the department of theatre arts will present the popular classic of music theatre, "Guys and Dolls."

Set in Depression-era New York, the city's most infamous crap game organizer, Nathan Detroit, needs the cash to set up his biggest game yet and turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for help. Meanwhile, Detroit's nightclub-performer girlfriend, Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for fourteen years with no wedding in sight and Masterson falls in love with missionary worker Sarah Brown. From the bright lights of Broadway to the cafés of Havana, Cuba, Frank Loesser's brassy musical boasts such popular tunes as "Luck Be a Lady," "Sit Down, You're Rocking the Boat," and "Adelaide's Lament."

"Guys and Dolls" is directed by acting/directing professor Ben Reigel, music directed by music theatre instructor Jeremy Franklin, choreographed by Georgie Reigel, and stars CMU theatre majors Ian Rowzee, Catie Spann, Brendan Lowry and Emily Skinner.

Tickets to the show are available online at
