You’ll laugh, cry and fall in love with the music of Stephen Sondheim and the talented cast of Theatre Ancaster’s Side by Side by Sondheim. The fantastic collection of classic songs offers a treat for every audience member. Upbeat comedic numbers, romantic duets and all-time favourites are sure to delight.
The show opens with Comedy Tonight from Sondheim’s uproariously hilarious musical A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. The rest of the show offers just what the song states, “Something for everyone.”
“We have great voices for this show,” said Andy Blackwood, director of the show. “Wonderful songs and wonderful harmonies. It’s a cast of eight with power and sensitivity and a lot of stage presence.
Blackwood said Theatre Ancaster has been lucky to have Lindsay Croxall working as a creative consultant and coach.
“Lindsay grew up with Theatre Ancaster, and has added her touches as a professional singer and dancer to Side by Side,” he said.
“Lindsay has performed at Stratford, Charlottetown, Toronto and professional theatres right across the country. She has recently returned home from starring in The Drowsy Chaperone in Regina, and will be here for the show.”
Side by Side by Sondheim runs Sept. 20, 21, 27, 28 at 8 p.m. and Sept. 22 at 2pm.
