The Alderson-Broaddus College Department of Music will present "Guys and Dolls" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday in Funkhouser Auditorium.
"The students have been working on this production since October and are excited to present it to the Philippi and college communities," said Director Lewis R. Hall, assistant professor of music.
The show begins with a bet. Nathan Detroit bets high-rolling gambler Sky Masterson that Sky cannot persuade Save-A-Soul Missionary Sister Sarah Brown to accompany him on a trip to Cuba. While the worldly Sky works his charms on a wary Sarah, Nathan is doing his best to stay outside the matrimonial clutches of his long-suffering fiancee, Miss Adelaide.
The full cast gathers after a dress rehearsal for the upcoming production of ‘Guys and Dolls’ at Alderson-Broaddus College. Shows begin Thursday and continue through Saturday.
"Guys and Dolls" is a fable about what happens to gambling men and the women who long to tame them. Set in the colorful world of New York City in the mid-20th century, the romantic and funny "Guys And Dolls" is populated with gangsters and gamblers, missionary dolls and scantily clad showgirls - and one of the great musical scores in the history of American theater.
Funkhouser Auditorium is located in the same building as Pickett Library on the Alderson-Broaddus campus. Tickets can be purchased at the door.
