Guys and Dolls in Evanston- NOW-January 3

This is late notice, but I just discovered an upcoming show that sounds fabulous, perfect for families, and might fit into your holiday plans:

The Light Opera Works company is performing Broadway classic Guys and Dolls at the Cahn Auditorium now through January 3.

This story, based on iconic Broadway journalist, writer and raconteur Damon Runyon's fantastic set of stories set in Times Square, has lots of classic songs, including "Luck Be a Lady Tonight," "My Time of Night" and "If I Were A Bell."  Like all of their mainstage productions, the show is being produced with a full orchestra.

Light Opera Works is an Evanston-based professional theatre company that specializes in producing musical theater from a variety of world traditions, including opera, Broadway, and revues.  Founded in 1980, they've presented over 100 mainstage productions, many second stage productions, and taught thousands of workshops and classes.  They've also been recognized for excellence many times in local media and press.

This production is directed by the Light Opera Works artistic director.
