“Guys and Dolls” Opening Friday

Playhouse 395’s “Guys and Dolls” Opens in Bishop on Friday, April 10

The Playhouse 395 hysterical and moving production of “Guys & Dolls” opens on Friday, April 10 for the first of nine performances in  the newly renovated Bishop Union High School Theater.  Set in the 1940s, gamblers, missionaries and night club performers mix it up in this satire set in New York City and Havana, Cuba. Shows run the last three weekends in April. All the big gamblers are in town for a huge craps game, organizer Nathan Detroit needs $1,000 to set the game up, Miss Adelaide wants Nathan to marry her, high-roller Sky
Masterson has to persuade Missionary Sarah Brown to go with him to Havana, and the Save-A-Soul Mission is about to be shut down. Without spoiling the plot, you’ll love how they thrash out most of the solutions by the final curtain.

For the first time ever, Playhouse 395 is offering show goers an incredible chance to make an on-stage cameo appearance in a live musical! Come to any of the nine performances of “Guys & Dolls” dressed in 1940s style. Two lucky people will be chosen to experience the best seats in the house during a nightclub scene. No acting experience needed – the director will show you just what to do. Loads of fun – be the envy of your friends – You’ll love it!
Shows are Friday and Saturday, April 10 and 11 at 7 pm; Sunday, April 12 at 2 pm; Friday and Saturday, April 17 and 18 at 7 pm; Sunday, April 19 at 2 pm; Friday, April 24 at 7 pm; and Saturday April 25 at 2 pm and 7 pm.
