​Synopsis: Set in Damon Runyon's mythical New York City, Guys and Dolls is an oddball romantic comedy. Gambler Nathan Detroit, tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps 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. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown, as a result. Guys and Dolls takes us from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, and even into the sewers of New York City, but eventually everyone ends up right where they belong.

Conundrum's Casting Statement

Conundrum Theatre Company is committed to the practice of color-conscious casting, in which we intentionally consider the importance of race and ethnicity in the stories we tell. We recognize that theater has an exclusionary history and that many roles that have traditionally been played by cisgendered white performers could be played by BIPOC, trans, or gender-nonconforming performers. There are also roles for which the character’s race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or gender identity are vital to the story. Casting actors who share those identities is particularly important in protecting stories that center on characters with historically marginalized identities. In our casting notices, we indicate which parts of a character’s identity are relevant and seek to fill those roles with actors who share those identities. We celebrate diversity and welcome actors of any race, ethnicity, gender identity, gender expression or ability status to audition for any role that is not reserved for individuals with particular identities relevant to that character.
