Town & Country Players opens 75th Anniversary Season with “Guys and Dolls”

Posted

The 75th Anniversary season of Town & Country Players in Buckingham kicks off Friday, April 22 with “Guys and Dolls” running weekends through May 7.

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, “Guys and Dolls” is a crowd-pleasing musical comedy with music by Frank Loesser and book by Abe Burrows and Jo Swerling. “Guys and Dolls” tells the story of gamblers Nathan Detroit, played by Michael Schiumo, and Sky Masterson, played by Jim Morris.

Nathan Detroit tries to find cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, played by Kallie Cooper, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to Sky Masterson for the dough and Sky ends up chasing straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown, played by Tricia Curley.

The show features perennial favorite songs “Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat,” “Luck Be a Lady Tonight” and “I’ve Never Been in Love Before.” “Guys and Dolls” is at Town and Country Players on Route 263 in Buckingham and runs weekends from April 22 to May 7. Curtain time is 8 p.m. for Friday and Saturday evening shows and 2 p.m. for Saturday and Sunday matinees. For information and tickets, visit townandcountryplayers.org or call 215-348-7566. Tickets are $25.
