8:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 3:00 p.m. Sunday
DIRECTOR Melanie Helton; CONDUCTOR Kevin Noe, with MSU Symphony Orchestra
Join us for a whirling evening of mismatched lovers, old flames and wise old women in Stephen Sondheim’s Tony-award winning A Little Night Music. Based upon Ingmar Bergman’s film Smiles of a Summer Night, the musical unfolds completely in three-quarter time as it tells the story of an aging actress who longs to rekindle a long-lost romance. Recently both Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bernadette Peters revived the role on Broadway, singing the beloved hit, “Send in the Clowns.” Waltz away with us for a magical night where the sun never sets in the summer. Sung in English. A preview lecture will be held 45 minutes before each performance.
Venue: Pasant Theatre, Wharton Center
Reserved seating. $20 for adults; $18 for seniors; $5 for students. TICKETS available from Wharton Center Box Office only, (517) 432-2000, (800) WHARTON.
