COMPANY in concert
presented by CLOCKTOWER PLAYERS, Community Theater of the Rivertowns
Phone Rings, Door Chimes, In Comes COMPANY!
Kick off Clocktower Players 40th season on Saturday, November 4th with the concert staging of legendary composer and lyricist Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award–Winning Best Musical, COMPANY!
Follow perennial New York bachelor Bobby on the night of his 35th birthday as he learns about the perils and pleasures of love, marriage, dating, and divorce during a hilarious array of interactions from “those good and crazy people – my married friends”.
When it first burst on the scene, COMPANY’S modern take on relationships was revolutionary and forever changed the course of Musical Theatre. Originally produced and directed by Harold Prince, it features many of Sondheim’s best-known songs: Company, Side by Side by Side, The Ladies Who Lunch, Another Hundred People, Barcelona and Being Alive.
Appearing with Clocktower for the first time are Peter Adamson, Jenn Bedell, Audrey Federici, Stephanie Horowitz and Jason Summers starring as Bobby. Jason is single and surrounded by married friends…”life imitating art, imitating life”. Clocktower favorites returning to our stage include: Richard Damaso (Oklahoma), Cindy Finegan (Beauty & the Beast), Samantha Kahn (American Idiot), Ruperta Nelson (Ragtime), Christopher Oldi (Sister Act, Oklahoma), Jen Ortega (In the Heights, A Chorus Line), Larry Reina (Camelot, 9 to 5), Neil Schleifer (Ragtime) and Ashley Wool (American Idiot).
Artistic and Executive Director, Cagle McDonald had this to say, “With this phenomenal cast, a cagey, witty book by George Furth and Stephen Sondheim’s brilliantly brisk and incandescent score — this one-night sensational event will sell out. Don’t miss it!”
Clocktower Players, resident theater company of the landmark Irvington Town Hall Theater, has been honored to receive many accolades including Best of Westchester’s Best Local Theater Group, winner of five 2015 OnSTAGE Critic’s Awards, including Outstanding Musical Award, Outstanding Actors in a Musical and selected by NY Theater Guide as one of the top five community theater companies in New York State.
COMPANY is directed and musically directed by George H. Croom and produced by Cagle McDonald with lighting design by David Lovett and sound design by Adam Guttmann.
