Titan Theater Company to Present Guys and Dolls

Jacksonville High School’s Titan Theater Company will present the classical musical comedy Guys and Dolls, March 10 and 11, 7pm in the Sandy Reed Auditorium at Jacksonville Middle School located at 718 Harris Road in Jacksonville.

Guys and Dolls, based on the short stories and characters of Damon Runyon, tells a comedic tale of the gamblers, showgirls and gangsters of the 1930s New York underworld. Director Jane Balgavy said “Guys and Dolls is a great show for any theatre to do, because it is full of comedy with a lot of classic one-liners; and the writing is fantastic, providing many opportunities for character roles. It is a really fun show for the whole family.”

Adult admission is $8 and students 17 and under pay $5.
