Tickets on sale now!
MA: Bill Hanney's award winning
North Shore Music Theatre presents an all-new sizzling production of GUYS AND DOLLS opening October 30, and
playing through Sunday, November 11. With its unforgettable songs and a cast of
gamblers, gals and gangsters, GUYS AND
DOLLS is musical entertainment you can bet on! Press night is scheduled for
October 31 at 7:30pm.
"We are excited to be ending the
subscription season with the classic musical Guys and Dolls," said owner and producer Bill Hanney. " This show
is considered to be the perfect musical, and our Artistic Director Arianna
Knapp, director Mark Martino, and I have put together the perfect cast of
performers to bring this colorful show to life. I know our audiences will be
thrilled with this production."
Set in the hustle and bustle of prohibition
era New York City, GUYS AND DOLLS soars with the
spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters including;
Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," out to reform
the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler
who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically
ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she's been
engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé,
desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.
GUYS AND DOLLS, based on "The Idyll of Sarah Brown" and characters by Damon Runyon, features a book by Jo Swerling and Abe
Burrows, and an iconic score by Frank Loesser that includes such songs as "Luck Be A Lady," "Sit Down You're Rocking The Boat," "If I Were A Bell," and "A
Bushel and a Peck."
The cast of GUYS AND DOLLS will
be led by Jonathan Hammond (Nathan Detroit), Mylinda Hull (Miss Adelaide),
Kelly McCormick (Sarah Brown), and Kevin Vortmann (Sky Masterson).
The cast also includes Wayne W. Pretlow
(Nicely Nicely), Ben Roseberry (Benny Southstreet),
Jamie Ross (Arvide), and Jessica
Sheridan (General Cartwright).
The 22 person cast also includes Chip Abbott, James Beaman, Katie Chung,
Kurt Domoney, Steve Greenstein, Meghan Glogower, Lauren Kadel, Ben Liebert,
Lizzy Palmer, Antuan Raimone, Clifton Samuels, Michael Scott, Justin M. Urso, and
GUYS AND DOLLS will be directed by Mark Martino,
choreographed by Michael Lichtefeld, and
musical direction will be provided by
Craig Barna. The creative team also includes Erik D. Diaz (Scenic
Designer), Paula Peasley-Ninestein
(Costume Coordinator), Kirk Bookman (Lighting Designer), Michael
Eisenberg (Sound Designer) Gerard Kelly (Wig and Hair Design), Natalie
A. Lynch (Production Stage Manager),
