Guys and Dolls

Guys and Dolls
Directed by Richard Brousil and Mary Bright
Produced by Brenda Townsend

When I mentioned that the lumber I was buying at Home Depot was for the set of “Guys and Dolls”, the cashier looked at me and said, “That was the weirdest Marlon Brando movie ever”. After thinking about it, I decided that I agreed with her, but the story of “Guys and Dolls” began well before that well remembered movie. The show actually…opened on Broadway on November 24, 1950, when I was a mature 9 days old, and since then has enjoyed some of the greatest success of any Broadway musical ever. Often revived on Broadway and more often performed by local theaters, the story is fun; the songs are among everyone’s favorites. I hope you enjoy our lovingly presented production, with what I think is an amazing display of talent by our all volunteer group of actors and musicians, and in the future, when you think of “Guys and Dolls” maybe you’ll remember Sara, Bob, Kris, Kevin and the rest, and not even think of Marlon Brando.
