About This Event
Springfield Little Theatre Summer Institutes are all-inclusive theatrical training grounds for experienced young musical theatre performers resulting in six public performances on the historic Landers Theatre stage! They provide exciting opportunities for committed students to be a part of a full scale production.
A demanding two-week process from beginning to end, an SLT Summer Institute may best be described as “summer stock” for youth!
Summer Institute – Session II will present Guys & Dolls JR.
Guys and Dolls JR. is an adaptation of the show considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. Its namesake ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950, and won numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Frank Loesser’s brassy, immortal score and witty book makes Guys and Dolls JR. a perennial crowd pleaser.
Set in Damon Runyon’s New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck. Meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.
