Guys And Dolls Junior

Guys and Dolls is well known both as a Hollywood film and a stage musical. The storyline is set in the 1940's around a couple of gamblers who are involved in the oldest permanent craps game in New York City. Nathan Detroit, a small time gambler in the area who is in desperate need of money, makes a bet with a friend Sky Masterson that he cannot make the next girl he sees fall for him. Sky bets that whoever it is, he will be able to take her to Havana for dinner the next day. Of course, the next girl he sees is Sara, who is running the local Mission. Will Sky succeed or will Sara be able to resist his charms? Will Sara manage to find enough sinners to be able to keep her Mission going?The musical has a number of classic songs and dances, including ‘Guys And Dolls’ and ‘Luck Be A Lady Tonight’ and the young actors in this production sang and danced well. There was, however, a problem with the balance between the music and the singing and sometimes it was difficult to hear what was being sung. This also applied to some of the dialogue – the music largely drowned out the crucial part in which the bet was struck.The cast worked together well and were all enthusiastic. One of the smallest actors was cast as the important gambler Big Jule and that worked very well. Overall, it was entertaining but probably needed a little more rehearsal time.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society.
