Acton Junior High Musical: Guys and Dolls Jr.
Fifty five talented 7th and 8th graders will dazzle audiences with classic songs like 'Luck Be a Lady' and 'A Bushel and A Peck' beginning Friday, March 2nd as R. J. Grey Junior High presents Guys and Dolls Jr. Based on the story and characters of Damon Runyon, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, Guys and Dolls was made into a movie in 1955 starring Frank Sinatra, Vivian Blaine, Marlon Brando, and Jean Simmons.
Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls Jr. introduces us to colorful characters who have become legends in the musical theatre: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll"; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, a nightclub performer whose chronic flu is brought on by the fact that she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating dice game.
So beat the winter blues and get your tickets to see Guys and Dolls Jr. at R. J. Grey Junior High School, 16 Charter Road, Acton. Show dates are March 2nd, 3rd, 9th, and 10th at 7:00 p.m., and March 4th and 10th at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 and are available at the RJG office, Roche Brothers, Donelan's, and Red, White & Brew.
