Liberal High School Performing Arts presents “GUYS AND DOLLS” Directed by Miriam Climenhaga.
Guys and Dolls is a musical fable of Broadway. Based on a story and characters by Damon Runyon, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows.
Guys and Dolls tops Entertainment Weekly’s list of the Greatest Musicals of All Time, and for good reason: it’s everything we love in musical theatre. The musical features Nathan Detroit, who needs some serious dough to keep his “oldest established permanent floating crap game” going. He’s also got his hands full with his marriage-minded girlfriend Adelaide. But when Nathan makes a bet with high-roller Sky Masterson, his problems appear to be solved. Based on Damon Runyon’s famous tales of small-time hoods and showgirls, Guys and Dolls is filled with some of the most wonderful showtunes ever, including “Luck Be a Lady,” “I’ve Never Been in Love Before,” and the irrepressible anthem “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.” Guys and Dolls will put a spring in your step and a smile on your face and remind you how much fun it is to see a musical!
The musical will be performed in the James W. Maskus Auditorium in the Liberal High School. Show dates are Friday, November 10th at 7:00 pm, Saturday, November 11th at 7:00 pm, and a special Sunday Matinee on November 12th at 2:30 pm. Tickets are $5.00 for Students, $8.00 for adults.
