In Upcoming Events, by , on April 29th, 2015

Niagara University Theatre will present “Guys and Dolls” from April 23 – May 3, 2015.

This Tony-Award winning show is considered the perfect American musical and is filled with unforgettable songs, a quirky cast of gamblers, gangsters, gals and good neighbors — an evening of entertainment you can bet on.

Set in Damon Runyon’s fictitious New York City, inveterate gambler Nathan Detroit is strapped for cash to set up the biggest craps game in town.  A scheme involving fellow gambler Sky Masterson, wagering for the heart of a straight-laced missionary, threatens to undermine his credibility with fellow gamblers… and his fiancé of 14 years.

“Guys and Dolls” will be on stage in the Leary Theatre within the Elizabeth Ann Clune Center for Theatre, Clet Hall, at 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 23 and Thursday, April 30.  The musical will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 24, Saturday, April 25, and Friday, May 1. In addition, 2 p.m. matinees will be on stage on Saturday, April 25, Sunday, April 26 (with post-show discussion), and Sunday, May 3.

The NU Theatre has implemented a new and easy way to purchase tickets on-line.  For a nominal fee, patrons can choose their seats and print out tickets.  Simply go to and follow the production link to the box office or season.  For questions, email or leave a phone message at ext. 8685.  Tickets may also be purchased at the theatre box office one hour before each show.
