The hustle and bustle of New York City will soon be making its way to City College’s Saville Theatre.

On Aug. 31, 25 students auditioned for the fall musical “Guys and Dolls.” A second round of auditions were held again on Sept. 5.

We always continue the audition process. It isn’t a first, second or third audition, it’s a continuation. It allows us to develop a better understanding of our students, and their singing, acting and dancing talent,” said Director June Richards in an email.

“Guys and Dolls” hit the Broadway stage in 1950 with the book being written by Jo Swerling and Abe Burrows. The music and lyrics were written by Frank Loesser.

It was chosen as this fall’s show because “It’s one of the best written musicals in the history of musical theatre,” said Richards. “It has great roles for men and women, and I love the music and the story.”

“Guys and Dolls” will open on Oct. 25 and continue during the weekends for three weeks with the curtains closing on Nov. 10.

Ticket prices will be $15 for general admission and $10 for students, seniors, or military.
