Cincinnati, OH – As summer approaches, the Walnut Hills High School Theatre Department will close out the year with their junior high musical, Guys and Dolls Jr.
The show runs May 12-14 at 7 p.m. in the Walnut Hills High School Auditorium.
Set in Damon Runyon’s New York City, Guys and Dolls Jr. follows gambler Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck. Meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls Jr. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.
Tickets are $12 for adults and $10 for students. They are now available, and can be purchased at: https://sites.google.com/view/whhstheatredepartment/tickets, where audience members can also read the COVID 19 policies for attending the performance. Seating is no longer limited, and we are excited to announce that we are back to full capacity. Masks are encouraged, but optional for all audience members.
This production and the entire WHHS Theatre Season is graciously sponsored by the Walnut Hills High School Class of 1964 Performing Arts Fund.
