GUYS AND DOLLS
Directed by Christina Westenberger
Adults - $20.00
Students and Children - $12.00
May 28 - June 13, 2015
Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls 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 fiance, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game. Guys and Dolls is simply Broadway at its very best - a show for the entire family to share and enjoy!
Book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. Music and Lyrics by Frank Loesser.
Based on The Idyll of Sarah Brown and characters by Damon Runyon
Presented by special arrangement with Music Theatre International

>Experience the thrill of man’s first powered flight as Rainbow Puppet Productions presents The Wright Brothers. We will follow the brothers from early childhood until the moment they make their first powered flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. It’s such a wonderful story with a very important lesson. Orville and Wilbur were successful because they grew up in an environment that valued and encouraged reading and they had great faith in their own abilities. The show has been presented in Washington, D.C. for aviation museum directors from around the world and it's been kid-tested and approved!
This event is part of the Williamsburg Players Children's Theatre series.

Managing his way to London, Oliver feels accepted for the first time in his life, is welcomed into a group of other young boys, headed by the Artful Dodger, who "makes wallets" under the direction of Fagin. What Oliver is initially unaware of is that they are really a band of pickpockets, One of Fagin's associates is Bill Sikes, whose girlfriend, Nancy, is devoted to him. Oliver looks to Nancy as his one true friend, especially needed when he discovers what Fagin and the boys actually do.
