Please note - all students enrolled in Jr. Musical Theatre must be available during the May Bank Holiday weekend. The show will perform in the Sean O'Casey Theatre for two days in May 2018, dates TBC.

Guys and Dolls Junior is a musical comedy involving the unlikeliest of Manhattan couples: a high-rolling gambler paired with a puritanical missionary, a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow paired with a craps game manager who is anything but. Guys and Dolls takes us from bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana to the sewers of New York City as it demonstrates the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.” Guys and Dolls features some of Frank Loesser’s most memorable tunes, including the hilarious “Adelaide’s Lament,” the romantic “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” the exuberant “If I Were a Bell,” and the classic “Luck Be a Lady.”
