Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys And Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they've been engaged for 14 years.
Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the strait-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.
In 1966 the Society transferred their productions to The Crescent Theatre, with rehearsals taking place at Tinkers Farm School until 1970, when they moved to Allens Cross Community Centre, where we still rehearse today.
Our recent productions, since we turned to musicals, have been ‘Fiddler on the Roof’, ‘Me and My Girl’ and ‘Kiss Me Kate’, all of which have been performed in Stourbridge Town Hall. We also put on an interim themed Concert every autumn, giving a wider range of opportunities for the Company to do solo work.
