Broadway classic Guys and Dolls in Winchester

Youth theatre production company RicNic Hampshire returns to the Theatre Royal, Winchester, this August for a performance of the timeless Broadway classic, Guys and Dolls!

New York’s most infamous gambler, Nathan Detroit, makes a bet with the equally notorious Sky Masterson that he won’t be able to woo the pious Salvation Army worker Sarah Brown. Whilst Sky pursues Sarah, Nathan must deal with his own problems - his fourteen-year engagement to long-suffering starlet Miss Adelaide. But love and gambling do not mix, forcing the characters to question their priorities: a journey that takes them from Broadway to Cuba and back again!

RicNic is a charity that provides young people between the ages of 16-21 with the free opportunity to become involved in the production team, technical team, cast and band of a professional quality stage musical without the control of adult professionals. RicNic is not just a vehicle for young people to express their creativity and musicality; it allows them to foster fundamental business and life skills, both socially and in leadership roles, which are essential to their ability to forge careers within and outside of the arts. The company, which brought the multi-Curtain Call-nominated The Pajama Game to the stage last year, will be bringing show-stopping numbers such as “Luck Be a Lady” and “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat” to the Theatre Royal from the 24 – 27 August.

Tickets are available from the box office on 01962 840440 or on their website at theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk/guys-and-dolls
