Last week­end to catch ‘Guys and Dolls’

Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - ARTS - STAFF RE­PORT

From the mo­ment three gam­blers claim “I’ve got the horse right here” to open “Guys and Dolls” with “Fugue for Tin­horns,” the odds are good that the au­di­ence is in for a night of laughs and mem­o­rable mu­sic.

Artis­tic Civic Theatre has three per­for­mances left in its pro­duc­tion of the mu­si­cal at the the­ater, 907 Gas­ton St. in Dal­ton, Ga. Show times are 8 p.m. to­day, Fri­day and Satur­day, July 27-29. Tick­ets are $15, $13 and $11.

Gam­bler Nathan Detroit is try­ing to find the cash to set up the big­gest craps game in New York City while the au­thor­i­ties breathe down his neck.

Nathan hopes to win a $1,000 bet against Sky Master­son, a gam­bler will­ing to bet on prac­ti­cally any­thing. Nathan pro­poses a bet he be­lieves he can­not lose: Sky must take a doll (a wo­man) of Nathan’s choice to din­ner in Ha­vana, Cuba. Sky agrees, and Nathan chooses straight-laced mis­sion­ary Sarah Brown.

The show is filled with mem­o­rable songs such as “Luck Be a Lady,” “Ade­laide’s La­ment” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat.”

For tick­ets: 706-2784796.
