First Baptist Church is hosting its 14th annual dinner theatre with proceeds to go towards the youth mission trip set for June.
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, April 22, 23 and 24, FBC Minden’s Student Celebration will present the Broadway musical “Guys and Dolls.” This year, a cast of about 50 people will present the musical. Alicia Dubose, coordinator, says the musical is a story of how the love of a good woman can change the ways of even a gambling man.
“Filled with popular Broadway tunes such as ‘Bushel and a Peck,’ ‘Luck Be A Lady,’ and ‘I’ve Never Been in Love Before,’ the show is set in the late 1940s New York,” she said, “complete with visiting gangsters from Chicago and a trip across the water to Havana.”
The cast contains students from several local high schools and churches, she said. The funds raised will go towards their mission trip in June to Mission Arlington, a mission trip to Arlington, Texas.
She says the trip will consist of mission work that includes volunteering at food and clothing pantries for shelters, possibly some light construction projects and some cleanup projects.
Performances are at 6 p.m., Friday and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday.
Tickets are $25 for general admission and $20 for children 12 and under.
