This June Champlain Valley Union sophomore Pearl Guerriere brings the role of Fredrika Armfeldt to life in the New London Barn Playhouse’s presentation of “A Little Night Music.” A masterwork by Stephen Sondheim, the critically acclaimed lyricist behind productions such as West Side Story and Sweeny Todd, this wildly romantic story of love, regret, and second chances is told almost entirely through song.
Directed by Lillian King and choreographed by Jennifer Jancuska “A Little Night Music” will star the Barn’s Artistic Director Carol Dunne performing the showstopper “Send in the Clowns.” The Barn will also welcome Broadway veteran Dorothy Stanley, whose career spans includes stints in the original Broadway productions of “Annie” and “42nd Street,” and dozens of other Broadway, off-Broadway, and regional credits, and David Bonanno, whose resume includes over 40 productions with Vermont’s well-known Weston Playhouse.
“A Little Night Music” runs for two weeks, Wednesday through Sunday, June 11-15 and Tuesday through Sunday, June 17-22. Evening performances are at 7:30pm Tuesday through Saturday and 5pm on Sunday. Wednesday matinees are at 2pm. Tickets range from $19-$40, with student rush tickets available for $16.50. Please call (603) 526-6570/6710 to reserve seats or for more information. Tickets can also be purchased online at http://nlbarn.org/box-office/current-season/.
The New London Barn Playhouse is one of the oldest continuously operating summer theaters in the country. Housed in an historic converted barn, the theater features professional Broadway actors alongside tomorrow’s stars in an intimate, air-conditioned setting with no seat more than 30 feet from the stage. The Barn has received countless accolades, including most recently a 4th consecutive “Best Musical” win from the New Hampshire Theater Awards.
