Guys and Dolls Opens Tomorrow

Cedar Rapids - Theatre Cedar Rapids presents its final show of the 2010-11 season this weekend, offering the classic musical Guys and Dolls. This show soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight “mission doll”; Sky Masterson, the slick, high‑rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer who’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancĂ©, desperate as always to find a spot for a game. The book is by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, the music & lyrics are by Frank Loesser, and the show is based on The Idyll of Sarah Brown and characters by Damon Runyon.

The cast boasts a plethora of TCR veterans, from Trevor Debth (The Producers) as Sky Masterson to Jonathan Swenson (Annie) as Nathan Detroit. Mary Rinderspacher and Heather Akers play Miss Adelaide and Sarah Brown respectively. Check out th preview video:

And for this opening weekend only, there is a two for one ticket sale. Go here for more information. The show runs through July 30th. All the information is here.
