Guys and Dolls comes to Chickasaw Civic Theatre May 17 for a three week-end run. Hailed as the Perfect Musical, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy about gamblers in search of a crap game, missionaries trying to save souls, and dolls looking for their own guys, set in Damon Runyon’s fictional New York City. The original production swept the 1951 Tony Awards and continues to take home plaudits, including awards for Best Musical, on both sides of the Atlantic. Director Mary Jo Alsip has assembled a talented cast headed by Shanna Morgan Stoker, Larry Andrews, Lindsey Wade and Jasyn Fowler to bring Runyonland to life on the CCT stage. Performances Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 and Sundays at 2, weekends May 17 through June 2.
