The Lawyer Show 2012

One of Vancouver’s most important legal events and a valued tradition, The Lawyer Show is a fundraiser for two of Vancouver’s most cherished theatre institutions: Carousel Theatre for Young People and Touchstone Theatre, both registered charities. Every year, twenty or so lawyers take to the boards to prove that acting and the practice of law have way too much in common. Lines are learned, songs are sung, audiences applaud, money is raised, and fun and friendship abound along the way.


The 2012 Lawyer Show adventure is...

Guys and Dolls

Based on a Story and Characters of DAMON RUNYON
Music and Lyrics by FRANK LOESSER

Gamblers, gangsters, and gals in the city that never sleeps! The slickest high rollers are in town, and they're depending on Nathan Detroit to score a secret spot for their floating crap game. Trouble is he's $1,000 shy. Throw in Sarah Brown, who's short on sinners at the mission; Sky Masterson, who accepts Nathan's $1000 bet that he can't lure Sarah Brown to Havana; Miss Adelaide, who's desperate to marry Nathan; the meddling Police Lieutenant Brannigan; and lively songs like “Luck Be A Lady” and you've got an evening to remember—you can bet on it! One of Broadway’s favourite musicals, it premiered in New York in 1950 and was immortalized by the 1955 film starring Marlon Brando and Frank Sinatra.
