Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim – Book by Hugh Wheeler

Sondheim creates a stunning tour de force when he takes Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, and turns it into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Winner of four Tony Awards, this is a musical work that has forever entranced the world of theatre. Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress, Desirée Armfeldt, and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik’s town, the estranged lovers’ passion rekindles.

Nov 1 – Nov 17, It Runs in the Family
By Ray Cooney
Directed by Sherri Small
Set in a hospital common room at Christmas time, this outrageous comedy focuses on a self-important neurologist, Dr. Mortimore who is just about to give the lecture of his career (with a knighthood depending on it). Matters become complicated when he finds himself pelted with the surprise fruit of a misspent youth. A former nurse bursts in with the news that not only is Mortimore the father of an 18-year-old boy but that his son (emotionally unbalanced and under arrest for drunk driving) is now in reception baying for his long-lost parent.
