Guys and Dolls is coming to town!

The King's School's Jackson Hall will be transported back to 1920s New York for a spectacular production of the classic Guys and Dolls.

Staged over three nights from February 14 to 16, it is King's new Head of Drama Chloe Deva's first production for the school, having previously worked in world-class schools both in the UK and Shanghai. 

Chloe said: "Guys and Dolls is a spectacular showstopper and we have an excellent, amazing and incredibly energetic set of lead characters."

The debonair Seb Fitzgerald is set to be a dead ringer for Frank Sinatra as Nathan Detroit with King's national champion orienteer Jake O'Donnell Brandoesque as Sky Masterson.

Tough but tender is Ava Bygrave as Sally Army Sergeant Sarah Brown, while the ever patient but increasingly petulant Miss Adelaide will be played by the talented Phoebe Harrison.

Moreover, Guys and Dolls has a host of fabulous supporting roles with names such as Nicely Nicely Johnson, Harry the Horse and Big Jule part of Broadway Folklore.

Based on Damon Runyan's colourful and comic short stories about Bronx and Brooklyn street life, it is a show no one will want to miss. Pupils have been in rehearsals for months and are looking forward to putting on the show.

Tickets, available on ParentPay, are £10 and are selling like hot dogs.
