"GUYS AND DOLLS"  is the hilarious, musical comedy and 1950 Broadway Tony Award-winner that became a 1955 film hit of the same name, starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.  The musical focuses on the colorful underworld of New Yawk mugs, lugs, dames and broads, including such charismatic characters as the high-rolling gambler Sky Masterson, the beautiful mission doll Sarah Brown, and the petty gambler Nathan Detroit with adorable nightclub dancer Miss Adelaide, his fiancée of 14 years.

In performance…  a fabulous 30-member cast of professional actors and local talent, and 15-piece professional orchestra.   The dialog is  a comedy of circumstance, and such vocal favorites as "A Bushel and a Peck," "Luck Be A Lady," "Take Back Your Mink," "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat," and others, you'll have an absolutely glorious night of entertainment!


All proceeds from this winter benefit event support NJYT's professional training and performance program, the only free program of its kind state-recognized for over 24 years as a major training ground for aspiring, young performers.
