1/11/11 Fullerton, CA - Guys & Dolls to be Hope International University’s Spring Musical

Guys and DollsThe Music Department of Hope International University (HIU) will present the charming musical production, Guys & Dolls, as the annual spring musical (Music by Frank Loesser; Lyrics by Frank Loesser, Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows). This witty romantic comedy is set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City and is considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. It soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who have become legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll," out to reform the evildoers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.
