Set in a mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy and a
longtime fan favorite. Nathan Detroit tries to set up the biggest craps game in town
while the authorities are on to him. Meanwhile, his girlfriend Adelaide laments their 14-
year engagement. Nathan turns to Sky Masterson for help, and in a twist of events, Sky
ends up pursuing Miss Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times
Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even in the sewers of New York City, but
eventually, everyone ends up right where they belong.

Guys and Dolls are included in Rolling Stone Magazine’s 10 Best Musicals of All Time.
Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, it ran for 1,200 performances
after opening on Broadway in 1950. Frequently revived, the show has been performed
with numerous all-star casts, featuring Ewan McGregor, Jane Krakowski, Brian Stokes
Mitchell, and Jessica Biel.

The Farmington Hills Youth Theatre was created as a program of the City of Farmington
Hills Cultural Arts Division in 2003 and supports beginner and seasoned actors in
developing life-long skills that build self-esteem, confidence, and the ability to work with
others. The Farmington Hills Youth Theatre is provided in conjunction with In the Mitten
Productions. For more information, call the Cultural Arts Division at 248-473- 1856.
The Farmington Hills Youth Theatre is supported in part by an award from the Michigan
Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs.
