The New Minowa Players' presentation of "Guys and Dolls" is this weekend.
Guys and Dolls will be presented June 28 and 29, at 7:30 p.m. and June 30, at 2 p.m. at the South Winneshiek High School auditorium in Calmar.
A reader's theatre skit, created and performed by area youth and directed by Gara Lonning, will take place a half hour before each show.
Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under. They are on sale through June 28, at the NMP Theatre, 906 South Mill Street, from 3-6 p.m. They also will be sold an hour before each show at the South Winneshiek auditorium.
This Broadway classic features the songs "Luck Be a Lady," " If I Were a Bell," " I've Never Been in Love Before," "Sit Down, You're Rockin' the Boat" and more.
The story revolves around a cast of vivid and memorable characters: Sarah Brown (played by Sarah Magner) of the Save-a-Soul Mission, who is trying to convert the gamblers and drinkers of Times Square; Sky Masterson (Gabe Twedt), a successful high stakes gambler, who woos Sarah on a bet, but unexpectedly falls in love; Nathan Detroit (Matt Cody) who is desperately trying to find a place to hold his floating craps game; and his fiancé of 14 years, Miss Adelaide (Emily Kurash), who wants nothing more than to finally get married.
