Abrams Spotlight Productions Inc. invites the community to its performance of the Broadway musical “Guys and Dolls.” Tickets are on sale now for this entertaining love story, to be presented Dec. 2-5 and 9-12 at the Nancy Byng Community Theater in Abrams. The show, directed by Abby Frank, is a classic Broadway musical that the whole family can enjoy.

“This is a large cast of about 25 actors, all doing so many different things – all for the same show,” Frank said. “We have talent of all ages, plenty of veterans to APSI, as well as several new faces. They’ve all been working exceptionally hard to pull together this big show in our two-month timeline.”

“Guys and Dolls” is a story of two big-city gamblers and the women who love them. Set in Depression-era Times Square, the show features the overlapping stories of Sky Masterson, who falls in love with mission worker Sarah Brown, and Nathan Detroit, engaged for 14 years to Hot Box Club headliner Miss Adelaide.

“This show has several well-known songs the audience is sure to love, including ‘A Bushel and a Peck’ and ‘Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat,’” Frank said. “I can’t wait for our talented actors to show you what they can do.”
