Pollock Players Youth Theatrics Summer Camp – Guys and Dolls Jr

This is a three-week camp open to students entering 6th grade through 18 years old.  Our production team works with students to develop an appropriate stage presence, hone vocal skills, increase dancing repertoire, and build a troupe of actors who respect each other and the arts.  The last Thursday and Friday are performance days with one matinee and one evening show each day in our state-of-the-art facility, complete with full sets, lighting, and costumes.

Guys and Dolls JR. is an adaptation of the show considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy. Its namesake ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950, and won numerous Tony Awards, including Best Musical. Frank Loesser’s brassy, immortal score and witty book makes Guys and Dolls JR. a perennial crowd pleaser.

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.

Camp is 8am-3pm Monday-Friday except the performance days which are the last Thursday and Friday of camp.  Camp hours performance days are  8am-11:30am and 5:30pm – 9pm.

Refunds will not be issued after May 15th under any circumstances.
