Cast announced for the Manchester Royal Exchange production of GUYS AND DOLLS

Guys and Dolls, produced with Talawa Theatre Company is being Directed by Michael Buffong. It will be set on the streets of Harlem during one of New York City's 'most significant cultural awakenings'. It will feature the original music from composer and lyricist Frank Loesser.

The cast includes Koko Basigara (Allison), Evonnee Bentley-Holder (Mimi), Nathanael Campbell (Liverlips Louis), Darren Charles (Society Max), Ewen Cummins (Lieutenant Brannigan), Chelsey Emery (Agatha), Ray Fearon (Natahan Detroit), Kurt Kansley (Harry the Horse), Danielle Kassarate (Angie the Fox), Fela Lufadeju (Benny Southwest), Melanie Marshall (General Matilda B.Cartwright), Ako Mitchell (Nicely-Nicely Johnson), Abiona Omonua (Sarah Brown), Javar Parker (Rusty Charlie), Joe Speare (Big Julie), Jaime Tait (Calvin), Toyan Thomas-Browne (Moe), Trevor A Toussaint (Arvide Abernathy), Lucy Vandi (Miss Adelaide), T'shan Williams (Martha) & Ashley Zhangazha (Sky Masterson).

For Sky Masterson and Nathan Detroit, every day is an opportunity to hustle, every dispute can be settled with a roll of the dice, and every dime is theirs for the taking. They live by their wits and the skin of their teeth. Lady Luck is on their side – until one night they both take a chance on love… 

In this new production, Frank Loesser’s timeless musical is relocated to Harlem during its renaissance, and celebrates the vivacity of that era in black America. It bursts into seductive life with unforgettable songs including LUCK BE A LADY, SIT DOWN YOU’RE ROCKING THE BOAT and the irresistibly infectious title number – which all come together to create the perfect celebratory night out. 

Guys and Dolls runs from the 2nd December 2017 to the 27th January 2018 at the Manchester Royal Exchange.
