POLAND — The Poland Players will present the timeless musical comedy “Guys and Dolls” on March 16-19 at the Dr. Robert Wall Theatre at Poland Regional High School.

Based on Damon Runyon’s Broadway stories, “Guys and Dolls” tells the tale of Nathan Detroit, the man who coordinates “the oldest established running floating crap game in New York.”

To finance his operation, Nathan bets fellow gambler Sky Masterson that he can’t get a certain girl, Sarah Brown, to go on a date with him. Sarah is a pure-at-heart Salvation Army missionary, dedicated to reforming the sinful ways of the inhabitants of Broadway.

Meanwhile, Nathan is having his own romantic problems with his girlfriend, Miss Adelaide, who after 14 years of dating is ready for marriage.

With its musical score by Frank Loesser and witty dialogue by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, “Guys and Dolls” has entertained audiences since its premier in 1951. The show features such songs as “Luck be a Lady,” “A Bushel and a Peck” and “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat.”

Performances will begin at 7 p.m. at the school at 1457 Maine St. Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for students and seniors. Reservations may be made by calling 998-5400, ext. 457, or e-mailing drobinson@rsu16.org.
