New Image

Join us as we head back into the brilliant mind of Stephen Sondheim with his classic COMPANY!

Performance dates are: February 1 - 10

AUDITIONS: DECEMBER 2 and 3 at 7:00

 
On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks, and even a wedding, his friends explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse; the habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood. Stephen Sondheim's Company is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-musical genre, and features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of the composer's best-known songs.
