Set in turn-of-the-century Sweden and directed by Monica Bell, associate professor of CCU’s Department of Theatre, A Little Night Music is a musical celebration of love. Featuring a gorgeous score infused with humor, warmth and the flavor of a waltz, Stephen Sondheim’s most popular work is ripe with possibilities and passion. Discover love, loss and the complexities of human desire in some of Sondheim’s most stunning melodies including “The Glamorous Life,” “A Weekend in the Country,” and “Send in the Clowns.” Performed with an unforgettable cast of characters, this work of enchantment and mischief is a masterwork of musical comedy.
