Celebrating the AFAA’s third year of intensives with a musical from the Golden Era,  with such great songs as “Sit Down You’re Rockin’ the Boat”, “If I were a Bell”, & “Luck be a Lady”, this is a not to be missed opportunity! With specific training in voice, acting, & dance in the mornings & learning the show in afternoons, your student will fall in love with this standard!

Synopsis of Guys & Dolls Jr.: Set in Damon Runyon’s New York City, Guys and Dolls JR. follows gambler, Nathan Detroit, as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap 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 without ever getting married. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, but Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown. Guys and Dolls JR. takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.
