The Parker Middle School Drama Club presents Frank Loesser’s GUYS & DOLLS, JR on Thursday, March 1 at 6 p.m., Friday, March 2 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, March 3 at 2 p.m. at the Parker Middle School Auditorium. 

Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, GUYS AND DOLLS JR. introduces us to colorful characters who have become legends in the musical theatre canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight "mission doll"; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, a nightclub performer whose chronic flu is brought on by the fact she's been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiance, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating dice game.   

Families of all ages will be sure to enjoy great singing and dancing in songs such as I’ll Know, If I Were a Bell, Bushel And A Peck, Luck Be a Lady, and Guys and Dolls.

Over 120 students are involved in the cast and crew, and teams of students and parents worked side by side to build imaginative sets which will transport you from 42nd Street to Havana to an underground sewer (the site of the infamous dice game).    

Please join the students of Parker Middle School on March 1-3 for GUYS AND DOLLS, JR!

I was recently at Parker with my two small kids and we happened to get a sneak peek at a dress rehearsal. The cast was fantastic - such talent, poise, and confidence. Break a leg, cast & crew!
