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!
