  • The Augusta High School fall musical Guys and Dolls will be performed at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 8 and Saturday, Nov. 9, at the Augusta High School auditorium.
    The story is based on characters by popular American writer Damon Runyon and the music and lyrics by Frank Loesser. Guys and Dolls won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 1949 and was selected as the winner of the 1951 Pulitzer Prize for drama. The movie premiered in 1955 and starred Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.
    Guys and Dolls centers around the gambler and scam artist Nathan Detroit. He bets a friend, Sky Masterson, that he can’t get Sarah Brown, a Salvation Army worker, to go with him to dinner in Havana. And throughout the musical, he looks for places to hold his annual crap game.
    Nathan and his gambler friends are constantly hiding from Lt. Brannigan, who constantly investigates their hideouts. Much comic relief is added when Nathan continues to give excuses to his longtime girlfriend, Miss Adelaide on why he won’t accompany her to city hall to get a marriage license.
