From the Town & Gown Players:
The Town & Gown Players conclude their 2008-2009 season with "Company" by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth, a musical comedy about the ups and downs of marriage.Dates and tickets:
"Company" follows Robert, a 35 year old bachelor who has been unable to connect in a long-term relationship, and his best friends - five married, once married, or soon to be married couples. The relationships offer Bobby a sometimes reluctant, front row seat to both the ups and downs of marriage and commitment. He can’t help but wonder: Is it really worth it to let someone else be that close? To let them that far into your heart and your life? Bobby’s conclusions make up the core of this classic modern musical.
Tickets for Company are $18 ($15 for students and seniors) and reservations can be made by calling 208-TOWN (208-8696). The show opens at 8:00 pm September 18 at the Athens Community Theatre located behind the Taylor-Grady House on Prince Avenue. A reception follows the opening performance. Additional performances of Company will be at 8:00 pm September 19 and 24-26, with matinees at 2:00 pm September 20 and 27.
