AUDITION NOTICE: "Guys and Dolls" by Ipswich Musical Theatre Company

About Guys and Dolls: Guys and Dolls is a musical romantic comedy set in the Manhattan of Damon Runyon’s short stories. It tells the story of Nathan Detroit, a con-man trying to find a new venue for his illegal crap game, and Sky Masterson, a high-rolling gambler. When Nathan bets Sky that he can’t take a puritanical missionary, Sergeant Sarah Brown, on a date to Havana, Cuba, the stage is set for a series of romantic and comedic escapades. Featuring iconic tunes like “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat” and “Luck Be a Lady,” Guys and Dolls promises to captivate audiences with its blend of humour, romance, and toe-tapping music.
