“Guys and Dolls” is the story of luck and love. Nathan Detroit (Nic Bishop) is planning his next illegal craps game, but cannot find a safe location for the game, and lacks the money to pay for it. To raise the money, Nathan bets Sky Masterson (Ben Dean) that Sky cannot get “Save-A-Soul” missionary Sarah Brown (Lindsay Schnute) to travel to Havana on a date with him. Meanwhile, Nathan tries to keep his longtime finance’ Miss Adelaide (Elissa Mockbil) at bay as she pushes for her trip to the altar. The musical features many well-known Broadway tunes such as “Luck Be a Lady,” “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat” and “Marry the Man Today.”
