HONESDALE - Wayne Highlands Middle School will present the Broadway junior production, Guys and Dolls Junior on Friday, November 17 and Saturday, November 18 at 7 p.m. at Honesdale High School Performing Arts Center at 459 Terrace Street, Honesdale.
Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls ?and now the Junior version? follows Salvation Army crusaders and high rollers from the streets of Times Square to Havana and back again.
Permanently-engaged Nathan Detroit (to psychosomatic showgirl Miss Adelaide) will be forced to fold Detroit?s Oldest Established Permanent Floating Crap Game unless he wins a bet from slick high roller Sky Masterson. When Sky gambles that he can woo any ?doll,? Nathan counters that Sky will not be able to convince an up-right but up-tight missionary named Sarah to go to Havana with him. Sarah finds the rakish Sky very resistible at first, but eventually melts and accompanies him to Cuba. Sky wins the bet, but Sarah wins his heart. Upon Sky?s return to New York, he takes a gamble and recruits the members of the rolling craps game gambles to go to the mission. He rolls all the right numbers, as the gamblers repent and the Dolls gets the Guys of their dreams.
