The talented folks at Woodland Park Players will be presenting three shows of Guys & Dolls at Roosevelt High School later this month and they are inviting locals to take part in the event.

Founded in 2015, the Woodland Park Players is a thriving community musical theater company drawing from the many known, and newly discovered talents of adults living the greater Woodland Park neighborhood of Seattle.

The Players are not only actors, but also musicians, dancers, set-builders, costume designers and technical crew who live or work in the vicinity of Woodland Park.

Together, they are committed to keeping the arts alive by producing one family-friendly musical a year. Proceeds from the shows are donated to arts programs at neighborhood public schools.

The three performances of Guys & Dolls will be performed on the following dates:

  • 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 17
  • 2:00 p.m. Saturday, March 18
  • 7:30 p.m. Friday, March 18

Tickets are available online and start at $15.

    Can you buy tickets at the door

    I just got an email from the producer – only Saturday Matinee shows still have tickets left – so it’s possible that there will be no tickets available at all at the door.

    GUYS AND DOLLS?

    As gender non-conforming, I find this binary gender performance offensive. You would hope they’d put on more inclusive show tunes.

    Well, there were women playing men and members of the LGBT community involved, if that smooths over any concerns.

    Community theatre has to work with a limited budget, and these classic musicals both meet those monetary limitations and serve as a vehicle for the large cast (and loving) that is involved. It’s really a beautiful thing, if your mind is open to the possibility!
