Guys and Dolls to be presented by Yale Secondary

Yale Secondary in Abbotsford presents the popular musical Guys and Dolls in February.

Every year, Yale Secondary in Abbotsford puts on a large-scale performance.

This February, the musical theatre’s show will be based on the Broadway stage play, “Guys and Dolls.”

Written by Jo Swerling, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, the story  is a popular one, adapted first into a book and then into a film starring Frank Sinatra.

The play also won a Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1951.

Students and staff have started rehearsals for the concert that will include singing, dancing and a comical story.

The plot line centres on characters from the  1950s, who gamble not only with their wallets, but their hearts as well.

Performances of the musical will be held at the Abbotsford Arts Centre, at 2329 Crescent Way.

Show times are Sunday, Feb. 12 at 2:30 p.m.; Feb. 13 and 14 at 10:30 a.m.; and Feb. 16-18 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are $12 and can be purchased at the school, located at 34620 Old Yale Rd.
