Following the success of SUPA North’s first production Love Off The Shelf in 2011, the company are very excited to return to the Ballina RSL, with a sparkling production of Guys and Dolls from Friday until Saturday 10 March.

This production will be the first of a series of shows at the Ballina RSL with SUPA North planning to stage two shows each year, starting with this production of Guys and Dolls, which will be followed in September by the Jon English/Simon Gallaher version of The Pirates of Penzance.

Guys and Dolls is perhaps one of Broadway’s best-loved musicals with high-energy song-and-dance numbers performed by many of Ballina’s best-known theatre performers. SUPA North’s production stars well-known local singer and performer Dean Doyle, who heads up the cast as Sky Masterson, with Liz Legge taking the role of Sister Sarah. Brian Pamphilon, known to SUPA North audiences as ‘the man who played ten roles’ in Love Off the Shelf, plays Nathan Detroit opposite Helen Jarvis, a partnership seen recently when they portrayed Rodney and Peg in Dusty.

This is a musical that will delight audiences of all ages so book early through the RSL at www.ballinarsl.com.au or on 6686 2544. 8pm shows will be held on tomorrow, Saturday and next Wednesday to Saturday 10 March. 2pm matinees will be held on Sunday 4 March and Saturday 10 March. Doors open three quarters of an hour before each performance and tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for concessions.
