Taking in a performance of Whitewater Middle School’s production of “Guys and Dolls Jr.” could be the perfect way to kick off the first month of spring.

Shows are scheduled at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday, April 11 and 12, in the Whitewater High School auditorium.

General admission tickets are available at the WHS box office beginning at 6 p.m. The April 11 show is a pay what you can night, with suggested donations of $5 for adults and $3 for students and senior citizens, which are the regular prices for the April 12 performance. Children 5 and younger get in free.

Set in New York City, “Guys and Dolls Jr.” follows gambler Nathan Detroit as he tries to find the cash to set up the biggest crap game in town while the authorities breathe down his neck.

Meanwhile, his girlfriend and nightclub performer Adelaide laments that they’ve been engaged for 14 years.

Nathan turns to fellow gambler, Sky Masterson, for the dough, the latter ends up chasing the straight-laced missionary, Sarah Brown.

“Guys and Dolls Jr.” takes the audience from the heart of Times Square to the cafes of Havana, Cuba, but everyone eventually ends up right where they belong.
