Guys and Dolls Auditions

Colonial Chorus Players announces auditions for
GUYS AND DOLLS
Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser
Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows
Directed by Andrew Rhodes
Musical Direction by Shawn Gelzleichter
Choreography by Lindsey McGovern
Produced by Fred Gallagher and Heather Hamilton
Guys and Dolls is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.

SYNOPSIS
Set in the Manhattan of Damon Runyon’s short stories, Guys and Dolls is a musical romantic comedy about high-rolling gamblers Nathan Detroit and Sky Masterson and the beleaguered women in their lives, nightclub performer Adelaide and straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls takes us from the bustle of Times Square to the dance clubs of Havana as it demonstrates the great lengths to which a guy will go when he truly falls in love with a “doll.”
