‘Guys and Dolls’ raises money for school arts programs

The Burns Park Players production of the Tony award-winning musical comedy “Guys and Dolls” opens this weekend. The community theater troupe raises money for arts programs in The Ann Arbor Public Schools.

Performances are scheduled for Feb. 5, 11 and 12 at 7:30 p.m. with matinee performances Feb. 6 and 13 at 4 p.m. All performances are in the Tappan Middle School Auditorium, 2251 E. Stadium Blvd. Tickets are $15; reserved seats are available at Morgan and York, 1928 Packard St.; tickets are also available at the door.

The Burns Park Players was formed in 1984 by a group of Burns Park Elementary School parents looking for a way to raise money to send students to camp. Since that time, it has grown into a community theater company that has supported arts-related activities through one major musical show each year. Since 1992, the Players has donated more than $230,000 to a variety of arts-related programs in the school district, according to information from the group’s Web site.
