New York in the 1950s comes to the Groundlings Theatre, Portsea, from today until Sunday in the shape of Guys And Dolls.

Sky Masterson tries to win the heart of Salvation Army sergeant Sarah Brown. With the Theatre once home to SA meetings, it has decided to commemorate its roots and put on the Broadway musical.

Sky and Sarah end up falling for each other – can she let her feelings for this gambler cloud her beliefs?

With music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and the book by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, Guys And Dolls premiered on Broadway in 1950. It’s also been recently announced that 20th Century Fox is remaking the 1955 musical film, which starred Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.

Tickets: £10 to £12, or £20.50 to £22.50 with dinner, from the Groundlings Theatre, Portsea, on (023) 9273 7370 or go to groundlings.co.uk.
