The classic musical “Guys and Dolls,” winner of a Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize for Drama, will appear on a Gainesville stage for the next few weeks.
The storyline centers on Nathan Detroit, the organizer of the oldest permanent floating craps game, and his friend Sky Masterson. Detroit bets Masterson that he can’t make the next girl he sees fall in love with him. The next girl who arrives on the scene is the pious and beautiful Miss Sarah Brown of the Save-a-Soul Mission. Meanwhile, Miss Adelaide, Nathan’s fiancé of 14 years and the main attraction at the Hot Box nightclub, just wants to get married.
Performances will be at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12-16 and 19-23 with matinees at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 10 and 23 at the Hosch Theatre, 429 Academy St., on Brenau University’s campus in Gainesville.
