A Fun Youth Production at Theatre Palisades
Some of the area’s most talented youngsters are performing in the Theatre Palisades Youth production of “Guys and Dolls” at Pierson Playhouse, 941 Temescal Canyon Rd.
This show originally premiered on Broadway in 1950 and won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Set in Depression-era New York City, the story revolves around a couple of big city gamblers and the women who love them.
The book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows tells the overlapping stories of high-roller Sky Masterson, who falls in love with mission worker Sarah Brown, and of Nathan Detroit, who has been engaged for 14 years to Miss Adelaide, a headliner at the Hot Box Club.
With music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, this lively performance provides an entertaining and fun evening.
The show is directed by Lara Ganz, with assistant director Hayden Roush, who is the youth pastor at Palisades Presbyterian Church. “We invite everyone to come and see the show,” Roush said.
Harriet Fraser is the musical director and the show is produced by Susan Jackman and Dolly Phillips. Tickets are $17 and this is the last week to catch the show.
There are still a few tickets available at 7 p.m. on Thursday, February 28, and Friday, March 1; Saturday, March 2 at 2 and 5 p.m. and Sunday, March 3 at 2 p.m. Visit theatrepalisades.com or call 310-454-1970.
