Next Show:

Set in Damon Runyon’s mythical New York City, Guys And Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck; meanwhile, his girlfriend, nightclub performer Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler Sky Masterson for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary Sarah Brown. Guys And Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.


Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys And Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks, and Oliviers.

Our 2019 show is the ever popular.... GUYS AND DOLLS!

We are delighted to announce that we have secured the same dynamic production team as our fabulous Top Hat, and we look forward to working once again with Chris Cuming (Director and choreographer) Kevin Bell (Musical Director) and the wonderful Nicola Brooks (Assistant choreographer) who returns for a third year running to drill every step to perfection!

Guys and Dolls is one of the greatest musicals of all time and a favourite with audiences and cast alike. A love story set against the backdrop of gambling and crime, this classic musical comedy has a timeless score packed with well loved songs including, ‘Luck be a lady tonight’, ‘I’ve never been in love before’, ‘If I were a bell’, ‘Adelaide’s lament’ and of course that brilliant show stopper, ‘Sit down you’re rockin’ the boat’!

We will be 'rockin' the boat' at the Theatre Royal Norwich Tuesday 22nd - Saturday 26th January with performances nightly at 7.30 and matinees Thursday and Saturday at 2.30pm. Booking opens in August.
