Five TMHS Grads Participate In Production Of 'Guys And Dolls'

Jun 07, 2016 03:54AM ● By Bill Gilman

Spotlight Playhouse presents the spectacular musical Guys and Dolls

The show runs June 10, 11 and 18 at 7:30 p.m. and June 18 and 19 at 2 p.m. at the Haverhill High School Auditorium.

The show's technical crew includes five recent Tewksbury High School seniors, who have been active in several TMHS productions.

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including TONY Awards, Drama Desks, and Oliviers. Frequently revived, the show has been done with numerous all-star casts including productions/concerts featuring Ewan McGregor, Jane Krakowski, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Jessica Biel.

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
 

Spotlight Playhouse is thrilled to be producing this treat for audiences
and performers alike!
