The musical magic of Stephen Sondheim and the story of 1900’s love quadrangle are at the heart of “A Little Night Music,” coming soon to the Piedmont College Swanson Center in Demorest

“A Little Night Music” tells the story of an entangled web of former and current lovers at the beginning of the 20th century in Sweden. Lawyer Fredrik Egerman recently married Anne, whom his son, Henrik, has also fallen in love with. Fredrik is reunited with a former flame, actress Desiree Armfeldt, and when her married lover Count Carl-Mangus learns of the reunion, things become complicated.

Piedmont College Theatre will share the story of the three couples at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 16-18; and 2 p.m., Feb. 19, in the Swanson Center Blackbox Theatre.

With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler, “A Little Night Music,” collected six Tony awards when it first opened on Broadway in 1973. A 2009 Broadway revival starred Catherine Zeta Jones and Angela Lansbury.

“As we launch our new bachelor of arts degree in musical theatre, we found ourselves gravitating toward musicals that not only challenge our students but our audiences as well,” said Bill Gabelhausen, chairman of the theatre department. “‘A Little Night Music’ is a wonderful example of just that.”

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Piedmont faculty, staff, and students are admitted free. Please make reservations by calling 706-778-3000 ext. 1355 or online by clicking here.
