ADRIAN — Chris Sancho, director of the Croswell Opera House’s impending all-spot significant school musical “Guys and Dolls,” definitely does not like to refer to her forged as “students.” 

“I connect with them ‘young professionals,’” she said. “This is a actually talented group.” 

The 1950 musical comedy about gangsters, gamblers and the females in their life opens at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 21. More performances are at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 22 7:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 27, and Saturday, Jan. 28 and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 29. 

Tickets vary from $12 to $25 for older people and are $12 for college students and are readily available by calling 517-264-7469 or on the internet at croswell.org

“Guys and Dolls,” with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser and guide by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows, was primarily based on two Damon Runyon short stories and materials found in other Runyon stories. It won the 1950 Tony Award for Best Musical and in 1955 was adapted into a film starring Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Jean Simmons and Vivian Blaine.
