We are currently working towards our winter production of A Little Night Music. This is a beautiful show based on Ingmar Bergmans' film Smiles of a Summer Night.
The story explores the tangled web of affairs centred around actress Desirée Armfeldt, and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. A Little Night Music is an intimate, fun tale of relationships and truly the most perfect show to return to the original roots of the Studio Company.
Our previous Sondheim shows have included Company, Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd and Assassins but this will be the first time that we tackle the concept of immersive seating at the amazing Bridewell Theatre.
Accompanied by a small band in a more minimalist setting, with a stripped back vision focused on highlighting the individual and ensemble performance, this show is a thrilling challenge for talented performers and our way of celebrating the works of the late Stephen Sondheim and sharing this wonderful piece with our audience.
A Little Night Music is full of hilariously witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire and contains Sondheim's popular song, the haunting "Send in the Clowns."
