“Luck Be a Lady Tonight” rang out in a recent rehearsal at Pacifica’s Spindrift Theater. “Guys and Dolls,” the classic musical about gamblers and their gals, is in many ways the reopening show for this community theater group, which has been depending on pluck more than luck to survive over the last two years. 

The play, initially a Broadway hit and then a movie, involves a group of New York gamblers and showgirls, a Save-a-Soul missionary, a Cuban dance hall and a can’t-lose bet that goes romantically awry. The Spindrift Players started planning for “Guys and Dolls” in 2020.
