The cast of “Guys and Dolls” at Geyer Performing Arts Center Sept. 12-15 includes: (from left) Will Herrington as Benny, Will Dixon as Nicely, Shawn Conway as Nathan Detroit, Leigha Bowman as Miss Adelaide and Vanessa Clarke Weaver as Sarah Browne.

It’s a safe bet that Geyer Performing Arts Center’s upcoming production of “Guys and Dolls” Sept. 12-15 will be filled with some classic favorite Broadway tunes.

Frank Loesser’s upbeat score including “Sit Down, You’re Rocking the Boat,” “Luck Be a Lady” and “A Bushel and a Peck” is part of the fun of this musical romantic comedy that brings together a high-rolling gambler and a puritanical missionary – a showgirl dreaming of the straight-and-narrow and a craps game manager that’s just the opposite.

Set in Manhattan and based on Damon Runyon’s short stories, “Guys and Dolls” focuses on con man Nathan Detroit’s (Shawn Conway) efforts to find new life for his illegal, but notorious, crap game. Ben Wren is directing the musical.

Performances are 7:30 p.m. Sept. 12-14 and 2:30 p.m. Sept. 15 at the theater located at 111 Pittsburgh St., Scottdale. All tickets are $15.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
