Shooting Star Theatrics is presenting the Stephen Sondheim musical “A Little Night Music” at its Mountain theatre.
The show opens Jan. 25 and runs until Feb. 3 at Dreamlight Studio, located at 230 Anchor Rd. unit 6.
A Little Night Music was written by Hugh Wheeler and features music and lyrics by Sondheim.
It revolves around Desiree, who while living her seemingly glamorous life, unexpectedly finds herself face to face with her ex-lover — the newly married Fredrik Egerman. The two, along with their families, depart for a weekend in the country together where lives are tangled and temptations are tested.
The musical features the Broadway favourite “Send In The Clowns.”
The cast, comprised entirely of local actors, includes Kathleen Dodd (Desiree), James Clemenger (Fredrik), Charmaine Shaw (Mme. Armfeldt), David Fletcher (Henrik), Elisa Sorbara (Anne), Alexandra Chappell (Petra), Dan Grieve (Carl-Magnus), Sara Chappel (Charlotte), and Lauren O’Donnell (Fredrika). The chorus includes Julie Buffett, Luke Fillion, Annette Grossi, Douglas Hawley, Nicole Kitchen and Jamie Taylor. The production is directed by Romeo Lingaolingao, with vocal direction by Sara Chappel, choreography by Elisa Sorbara, and piano accompaniment by Steve McRae.
Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door; call 905-389-STAR or see www.shootingstartheatrecompany.com.
