The PAC performance is suitable for all ages
BERNARDSVILLE, NJ – Bernards High School will present Guys and Dolls at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 11, at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday, March 12 and at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 13, in the Performing Arts Center (PAC) in Bernardsville.
Considered by many to be the perfect musical, 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, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. 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.
Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys And Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it first opened on Broadway in 1950. It has been brought back to Broadway many times since then winning Tony Awards, Drama Desks, and Oliviers. The music and lyrics, written by Frank Loesser, include the well-known songs “Luck Be A Lady” and “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat.”
Mr. Christopher Tomaino and Ms. Brittany Goodwin are directing the high school students in the large cast. Tickets are available at the PAC Box Office, thirty minutes prior to each performance at the door subject to availability, online at showtix4u.com or may be reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
