College of Central Florida Musical Theatre students will present “Company” at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 11-12, and at 3 p.m. Nov. 13, in the Dassance Fine Arts Center.
A 1970 musical comedy based on a book by George Furth with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, “Company” was nominated for a record-setting 14 Tony Awards and won six.
The plot revolves around Bobby, a single man unable to commit to a steady relationship, five married couples who are his best friends, and his three girlfriends.
The musical is a series of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, linked by Bobby’s 35th birthday celebration. The show’s hit song “Being Alive” appears at the end of Act II and is sung by Bobby, who is facing being one year older and the prospect of living the rest of his life alone.
“Company” was among the first musicals to deal with adult themes and relationships.
“Company” is proudly sponsored in part by Senior Learners Inc. Learn more at SeniorLearners.org.
