Tri-Valley Repertory Theatre recently became the new resident theater company at Pleasanton’s Firehouse Arts Center — replacing Pacific Coast Repertory Theatre, which also plans to continue producing at the venue. For its first show at the Firehouse (and of the company’s 35th season), Tri-Valley Rep is betting on a sure thing with “Guys and Dolls,” the beloved 1950 musical about high-rolling gamblers and the women unfortunate enough to love them. A romantic comedy about a gambler seducing a pious Christian missionary on a bet, the musical’s book is by Jo Swerling (screenwriter of films such as “Platinum Blonde” and “Leave Her to Heaven”) and humorist Abe Burrows, who later collaborated with songwriter Frank Loesser on “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”.

So the question that’s intrigued observers for years — who is Katie Holmes, really? — seems to be one she’s finally digging into herself. She recently bought a home in Calabasas, and she and Suri, now 8, divide time between the West Coast and New York. She watched the “Olive Kitteridge” miniseries on HBO and says she’d be interested in going back to television herself. She admires actresses such as Jodie Foster, Cate Blanchett and Cameron Diaz (“their versatility, their intelligence — they work a lot, and work hard”). She’d love to do a Marvel movie and dreams of working with big directors such as Miller, Alexander Payne and Steven Spielberg. Oh, and Christopher Nolan again, the filmmaker behind “Batman Begins.”.

Alphabetically by last names with their pro partners are. Jake T. Austin, 21: Since ABC is a Disney-owned channel, it’s a foregone conclusion that there will be at least one celebrity from a Disney channel show.

His pro partner is Jenna Johnson, 22, who’s been promoted to pro from the DWTS Troupe, the dancers who provide dance spots around commercial breaks.
