THE Broadway smash hit musical Guys and Dolls will light up stages in Tweed this week.

Hot on the heels of a sell out season of Chicago the crew from Neptune Productions are excited to present one of the most popular musicals of all time.

Visitors will be treated to a colourful 1950s backdrop of Times Square.

Here a bunch of gamblers have a run-in with the Salvation Army.

Man-about-town Sky Masterson bets he can woo the uptight Salvation Army lass Sarah Brown.

The colourful characters and language used by writer Damon Runyon is the mortar that binds the elements together into a magical, musical comedy world.

With lasting songs including Luck Be a Lady Tonight and Sit Down You're Rockin' the Boat, the success of Guys and Dolls as one of the most performed musicals in history is assured.

Director and coordinator Wendy Fahey said 10 out of the 60 people in the production were first timers to the stage.

"They're very excited with a few nerves thrown in there," she said.

The musical has taken three months of hard work and features all Tweed locals.

Guys and Dolls will be at the Tweed Civic and Cultural Centre September 21, 22, 26, 28 and 29 at 7.30pm, with matinees on September 22, 23, 29 and 30 at 1.30pm.
