Guys and Dolls
Wed 11 Apr - Sat 14 Apr, 2018
Essex Police HQ Assembly Hall
Guys and Dolls
Set in Depression-era New York City, Guys and Dolls follows loveable gambler Nathan Detroit as he tries to find a new location for his floating dice game, whilst trying to appease his fiancée of 14 years, Miss Adelaide, who wants nothing more than a marriage and a white picket fence. In a desperate bid to fund his game, Nathan bets the coolest high roller in town, Sky Masterson, that he can’t get a date with Sergeant Sarah Brown of the ‘Save a Soul’ mission, who is more interested in redeeming the sinners of New York. Will Sky manage to win her over? And will Nathan manage to keep one short step ahead of the law long enough to make an honest woman out of Adelaide?
With a fantastic musical score that includes songs such as ‘Luck be a Lady’, ‘A Bushel and a Peck’ and ‘Sit Down You’re Rocking the Boat’, this high-spirited story of unlikely couples will have you laughing and tapping your toes the whole way through.

Essex Police HQ Assembly Hall
Sandford Road
This assembly hall is located at the Essex Police Headquarters in Chelmsford. We have a licensed cash bar that is accessible before the show and during intervals. Unfortunately we cannot accept card payments at this time so all purchases will be cash only.
Please be aware that our show is held on the second floor and our main lift is currently not working. This will mean you having to use the stairs to get to the hall. There is a secondary lift that we could utilise if we need to but this will still require you to get up two flights of stairs.
Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
Please park in the Orchard car park next to Police HQ. The entrance to the hall will be clearly signposted from here.
