Guys and Dolls named!

Published:

After some tough auditions and call-backs, we can now announce the Principal players for our up-coming show.

Tony Prince and Jessica Walters have been cast as Sky Masterson, the high-rolling professional gambler and Sergeant Sarah Brown of the NYC Save-a-Soul Mission, while Chris Simmons and Linzi Stefanov are playing the more-comedic roles of Nathan Detroit, the guy in charge of an illegal floating dice game and Miss Adelaide, the lead singer-dancer at the Hot Box nightclub, his fiancée of 14 years.

In addition, David Robarts has won the part of Nicely Nicely Johnson, who famously sings Sit Down, You’re Rocking The Boat, and he will be ably assisted by Les Hampson, Mark Hoile, Jimmy McLoughlin and Barry Miller as other leading gamblers/gangsters.

Over at the Mission, Frank Nance will be playing the patriarchal figure, Arvide Abernathy to Edwina Milford’s General Cartwright, the organisation’s revered head.

 

Join us all at the Floral Pavilion from 15th – 17th May to follow the antics of these larger-than-life characters in GUYS AND DOLLS, the romantic comedy often summarized as “a musical fable of Broadway.”
