YSP Teen presents Guys and Dolls

2:00 PM-4:00 PM, 7:00 PM-9:00 PM

Hanover Theatre for the Performing Arts
2 Southbridge St.
Worcester, MA 01608

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.

Considered by many to be the perfect musical comedy, Guys and Dolls ran for 1,200 performances when it opened on Broadway in 1950. It received nearly unanimous positive reviews from critics and won a bevy of awards, including Tony Awards, Drama Desks and Oliviers.

Cabinet Making in Early 19th Century New England

9:30 AM-5:00 PM

Old Sturbridge Village
1 Old Sturbridge Village Road
Sturbridge, MA 01566

This summer, Old Sturbridge Village is proud to announce our new exhibit, Planed, Grained, & Dovetailed: Cabinetmaking in Rural New England, a new exhibition highlights rarely-seen objects and primary source materials from the Village's collections. Centered on three main themes - form, process, and people - the exhibition examines the tools, products, and livelihoods of rural cabinetmakers in the early 19th century. Visitors will gain a deeper insight into how these objects were designed, fashioned, and used in the period, and how they inform our understanding of modern-day craftsmanship.

The exhibition illustrates the wide range of objects shaped by the hands of rural cabinetmakers including clock cases, sofas, sideboards, and coffins. Delicate inlay, figured veneers, intricate carvings, and grain-painted surfaces, represent the diversity of decorative processes practiced by a New England cabinetmaker to adorn his work.
