South Pasadena High School is proud to announce its latest production, COMPANY! The Stephen Sondheim musical is a sophisticated, fanciful, comedic look at relationships in early 1970s’ New York City and is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark comedy, modern musical genre. Winner of 7 tony Awards, this show is a must see!
On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor “Bobby” contemplates his commitment issues while his married friends concern themselves with trying to find Bobby the right girl. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and a wedding, his friends try to explain the multi-layered condition of being married.
The score of Company is beautiful and haunting, containing many of Sondheim’s best known songs from the worldly-wise “Ladies Who Lunch” to the hilarious “Getting Married Today”, the contemplative “Another Hundred People” and the show-stopping “Being Alive”. The strength of the piece lies in its vivid and real characters and is set on a vibrant 70’s New York City set built by the terrific design team and students at SPHS. The selection of Company continues South Pas High’s dedication to present productions that challenge the students and offer the community the opportunity to see some great theatre. Every audience member will see reflections of themselves in these characters. Come see this extraordinary show!
