Four siblings to go gangster in musical

OPENING on Friday, the upcoming production of Guys and Dolls by Holroyd Musical and Dramatic Society (HMDS), is very much a family show for four siblings from Auburn.

The 29-member cast includes Bedelia Lowrencev in a lead roles as Sargent Sarah Brown, performing alongside her twin Jeremy, who has recently returned to Sydney after studying overseas with the Los Angeles Performing Arts Conservatory, as well as their brothers Harrison, who plays Benny Southstreet, and Marlon, who plays Joey Biltmore and Rusty Charlie.
Returning in his fourth HMDS production, Granville’s Albert Drake is also in the cast, playing one of the show’s gamblers/gangsters.
Based on short stories by Damon Runyon, with music and lyrics by Frank Loesser, Guys and Dolls is set in the New York underworld of the 1920s and 1930s.
With the authorities breathing down his neck, Nathan Detroit tries to find the cash to set up the biggest craps game in town, while his girlfriend and nightclub performer, Adelaide, laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years. Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the money and Sky ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown.
Directed by John Brown with musical direction by Susan Brown, the HMDS production opens at Redgum Centre in Lane Street at Wentworthville this Friday, September 20, at 8pm, with a run of seven more shows through until September 29.
