Based on the Broadway stories of Damon Runyon, "Guys and Dolls" tells the tale of Nathan Detroit, played by 8th grader Michael Smith who is the organizer of the oldest established permanent floating crap game in New York, who bets fellow gambler Sky Masterson played by 8th grader Antonio Venditti, that he can't make the next girl he sees fall in love with him. That "next girl" is Miss Sarah Brown played by 8th grader Cassandra DiFabio, a pure-at-heart Salvation Army-type reformer. Meanwhile, Nathan is having trouble with his own girlfriend, Adelaide played by 8th grader Mikayla Long, who after 14 years of dating is ready for marriage. Guys and Dolls is a musical comedy that premiered on Broadway over 50 years ago. The vibrant characters such as Nicely—Nicely played by 8th grader Austin O’Malley, Benny Southstreet played by Robbie Monturo, Harry the Horse played by 7th grader Isaiah Jones along with the Hot Box dancers and a company of fifty students will delight audiences with these classic songs: "Luck be a Lady" and "Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat." This musical is the seamless balance of story, dance, music, and romance, which makes for a perfect reason to come see the Howell Middle School South Players on stage!
