A Musical Fable of Broadway!
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 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.
Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, it might also be the perfect AfterWork Theater production! With exciting dance numbers, a very memorable soundtrack and tons of opportunities to create some madcap characters, there is something for everyone in this show!
Vocals: Basic and fun harmonies | Dance: All the kicks and turns
Basic tuition to participate in an AWT Mainstage Musical is $550. Newbies get a $50 discount. Participants can pay tuition all at once or in three monthly installments. EARLY BIRD SPECIAL! The first ten sign ups will receive a free AWT t-shirt or tank top! See below for details.

Discount types can not be combined. Tuition does NOT cover a print out of your script/score/sheet music or your costume. AWT has a small budget to cover some specific costume needs. For there, we work with participants to piece together costumes sourced from their closets, thrift stores and the good will of the community. All tuition payments are final and non-refundable for any reason.
Below is the rehearsal and performance schedule for Guys & Dolls. Rehearsals are generally held one night per week and one afternoon per weekend for eight weeks. As there are two casts, you will be assigned to rehearse on Tuesday OR Thursday evenings depending on which cast you are placed in. During the second week of rehearsals, you will receive a detailed schedule that specifies exactly what dates and times you will be needed.
ATTENDANCE POLICY: Prior to Launch Day, participants will have the opportunity to list up to two rehearsal conflicts. Once rehearsals begin, participants may miss up to two additional undisclosed rehearsal. After that, it is up to the discretion of the creative team whether or not a participant’s role must be reassigned.
NOTE: the schedule below is subject to change.
“Newbie” Refund Policy
New to AfterWork Theater? We know signing up for new experiences can be scary. That’s why we are offering newbies a 100% money back guarantee if they choose to withdraw from the program before the end of Launch Day Part II (see schedule for details). After two full days with us, if you decide this experience isn’t for you then you’ve made zero commitments, financial or otherwise. New participants who withdraw after Launch Day – including the very next day – are not eligible for a refund of any kind and will not be able to repurpose tuition towards a future program.
PLEASE NOTE: A “newbie” is defined as someone who has never participated in an AWT Mainstage, Sing Out or Bootcamp program. A newbie seeking to withdraw from the program must do so via email to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the completion of Launch Day Part II. They may not postpone their refund request until the cast list is published. Once Launch Day Part II is over, they are no longer entitled to a refund for any reason. Participants who withdraw after Launch Day Part II are responsible for the full tuition amount regardless of how many monthly payments have incurred at the time of withdrawal.
Returning Participant Refund Policy
For returning participants who have previously participated in an AWT Mainstage, Sing Out or Bootcamp program, all AfterWork Theater tuition is completely non-refundable. Participants who withdraw from a program 48 hours prior to Launch Day may re-purpose their tuition toward a future program no more than one calendar year from Launch Day of the initial program purchased. Returning participants who withdraw less than 48 hours before Launch Day are not eligible for a refund of any kind and will not be able to repurpose tuition towards a future program. Participants who withdraw are responsible for the full tuition amount regardless of how many monthly payments have incurred at the time of withdrawal.
