      A Little Night Music
      Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
      The Playhouse at Overture
      August 10-19, 2012

      Bringing together surprising liaisons, long simmering passions and a taste of love’s endless possibilities, A Little Night Music explores the universal subject of love. Caught in the spell of a Swedish summer solstice, three mismatched turn-of-the-century couples, like Shakespeare's lovers, uncover their true passions. At moments elegant and romantic, at others farcical and bittersweet, A Little Night Music will feature a talented cast of local actors with a lovely chamber orchestra.

      Performances are Fridays & Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 2 pm. Preshow lectures are Fridays at 6:30 pm and Sundays at 1 pm. A complete list of dates and full cast list is available at http://fourseasonstheatre.com

      Tickets are available now through the Overture Center at (608) 258-4141 and online at: http://overturecenter.com/production/a-little-night-music#dates. Please note: There are no convenience fees on in person ticket purchases. For best seating options, advance purchase is recommended.

      This production has been generously supported by the Pleasant Rowland Fund for Theater, a component fund of the Madison Community Foundation. Additional support provided by the Dane Arts, Madison Arts Commission, and Wisconsin Arts Board.
