The cast of Guys and Dolls took their final bows to tumultuous applause at the last performance on Saturday night, December 1.
Director Lerae Davison thanked the cast, crew and production team for the mammoth effort they had put in to make this run of 18 performances such a success.
Lerae was thrilled with the response to this production with a number of shows sold out well in advance of opening night.
For those who missed this wonderful production, Miss Adelaide (Rebecca Pleasant), Hot Box Dancer eventually manages to get gambler Nathan Detroit (Lachlan Brown) to the altar after a 14-year engagement and Sarah Brown (Anna Smart), Salvation Army Officer, saves the soul of Sky Masterson (Jeremy Kemp) who joins her in the Mission Band.
Each night the audience loved the happy ending and many left humming their favourite songs with a spring in their steps.
Congratulations to all the cast, crew and production team for a successful musical.
