Empress Theatre Play Review / Guys and Dolls

Guys and Dolls
Directed by: Shawn Maxfield
Music Directed by: Trent Oliphant
Choreographed by: Porter Williams

The local group comprised of the Oquirrh Hills Performing Arts Alliance, a non-profit organization, brings to life the 1950's play. A lively musical, the performers were anything but amateur. They delivered a rollicking good time for the entire audience.

The Empress theatre is small and intimate there is not a poor seat in the house. The audience is close enough to feel part of the play. And when the gamblers are doing their craps dance, toes were tapping along.

This play runs through March 30th, I would recommend you see it, or you'll miss out on something special. Marlon Brando, Jean Simmons and Frank Sinatra, stars of the 1955 MGM Movie would be proud of this small theatre's rendition.
