The Fr. William Scheid Players Presents Musical Comedy - Guys and Dolls - to Benefit Catholic Youth Apostolate

The Catholic Youth Apostolate is pleased to announce that the Fr. William Scheid Players will continue their 39th season with Guys and Dolls!

Set in Damon Runyan’s mythical New York City, this oddball romantic comedy considered by many to be the perfect musical, soars with the spirit of Broadway as it introduces us to a cast of vivid characters who are legends in the canon: Sarah Brown, the upright but uptight “mission doll,” out to reform the evil-doers of Time Square; Sky Masterson, the slick, high-rolling gambler who woos her on a bet to Cuba and ends up falling in love; Adelaide, the chronically ill nightclub performer whose condition is brought on by the fact she’s been engaged to the same man for 14 years; and Nathan Detroit, her devoted fiancé, desperate as always to find a spot for his infamous floating crap game.

This year’s cast of 90 will feature several priests of the Archdiocese, including Monsignor John Borcic of St. Mary Magdalen Parish, Fr. John Brennell of Seven Holy Founders Parish in Affton, Monsignor Norb Ernst of St. Margaret Mary Alacoque Parish, Fr. Bill Wigand of Regina Cleri, and Fr. Terry Borgerding, along with dozens of talented grade school, teenage, and adult performers from 35 different parishes in the Archdiocese.

This year marks the group’s 39th anniversary of presenting Broadway plays, reviews, and musicals featuring Archdiocesan clergy and laity to raise funds for the youth programs of the Catholic Youth Apostolate.

Performance dates are:        Friday, July 20 at 7:30 pm
                                                Saturday, July 21 at 7:30 pm
