The public is invited to come out to a “family-friendly classic” musical at Algonquin. Students will be putting on “Guys & Dolls” three evenings next week.
Northboro-Southborough Music Association is again using the school’s play as a way to raise funds — through Candygrams.
The play will be performed on Algonquin’s main stage in the auditorium at 7:00 pm on Thursday – Saturday, November 17-19. The public can purchased tickets at the door ($15/adult, $10/student) or secure them in advance online here.
Guys and Dolls is a family-friendly classic musical comedy that is often thought of as the perfect musical theater production. It has been staged around the world countless times since its original Broadway run in 1950, most recently in a 2022 Kennedy Center revival concert. . .
Featuring classic, well known songs like “Luck be a Lady,” Guys and Dolls is sure to be an event everyone in the local community can enjoy.

The fall musical is Algonquin’s biggest annual theater production. This year’s cast and crew features more than 50 ARHS students. That’s a lot of opportunities to market Candygrams to families and friends.
Please show your support for the performers and production crew by purchasing a $5 Candygram to be delivered to a student after the performance you designate. Proceeds go to the NSMA which supports scholarships and music education in the Northborough Southborough school district. . . Online sales will end at midnight before each performance. Additional Candygrams will be available for purchase at each performance, however pre-orders are helpful for planning purposes. We appreciate your support.

As promised, here is Guys and Dolls’ plot synopsis quoted in the school’s promotions:
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 and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for fourteen years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. 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.
