CCT rolls dice on musical
Nathan Detroit runs a craps game one step ahead of the law and needs safe harbor. He sees high-roller Sky Masterson as an easy ticket to big dough and bets Masterson he can’t woo do-gooder Sarah Brown, a member of the local Save-A-Soul Mission.
The premise behind Frank Loesser’s “Guys and Dolls” has smitten audiences since its 1950 debut, and a 1955 silver-screen version starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra only heightened its profile. Its memorable soundtrack gave Sinatra one of his signature hit tunes in “Luck Be A Lady.”
Chickasaw Civic Theatre (801 Iroquois St.) will stage its final weekend of this American classic May 31 – June 2. Friday and Saturday curtain is at 7:30 p.m. Sunday matinee is at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $18.75 for adults, $15.75 for students, military and seniors.
