The Factory Theatre at Greenville University has been busy through the month of January to rehearse and prepare for its first production of 2018.
Jes Adam, artistic and executive director of the Factory Theatre said, with a hat tip to St. Valentine’s Day, the theatre has selected a perfectly themed production to go along with the holiday. George Furth’s book and Stephen Sondheim’s music combine to create the fabulous theatrical experience that is the Tony Award winning musical – COMPANY. Join Bobby, his married friends, and his girlfriends as we celebrate his 35th birthday and begin a journey of discovery about relationships and marriage.
With a live piano played by Nicholas Watterson and Sondheim’s score, you are sure to tap your toes and go home humming a few tunes. Some familiar songs from the show include The Ladies Who Lunch, Being Alive, and Another Hundred People. While you’re humming or tapping, your face will be alight with joy as George Furth’s hilarious characters play out their scenes. Anyone (married or not) will love Furth’s hilarious ideas about marriage and relationships.
This performance is appropriate for most audiences and includes adult themes and mild language. Concessions will be available before the show and during intermission. All seating is general admission. Tickets are available for purchase at Watson’s Drugstore, Jo’s Java, Adam Bros Coffeehouse, and at the door. Student tickets are $5 each. Adult tickets are $10 each.
