WCCST_Company logoCOMPANY
Wilmington College Community Summer Theatre
July 18-21
[Wilmington]

Directed by Wynn Alexander
Music direction by Matt Spradlin
Choreography by Cole Haugh

Cast: Bryan Wallingford as Bobby, Bekah Wall as Sarah, Matt Purkey as Harry, Tricia Heys as Jenny, Andrew Conarroe as David, Gina Beck as Susan, Timothy Larrick as Peter, Kate Koch as Amy, Kevin Wall as Paul, Cherie Cooper-Darragh as Joanne, Steven Haines as Larry, Abby Smith as April, Jessica Fair as Marta & Jessica Yankel as Kathy

Company, with music by Sondheim and book by George Furth, takes place on the night of Bobby’s all-important “30-something” birthday. Bobby, a long confirmed single, contemplates what it means to be alone. Over the course of a series of remembered dinners, drinks and even a wedding, friends explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse. Bobby is forced to question “the tick-tock” of what it means to be unmarried. Sondheim’s Company is largely regarded as a trailblazer of the dark-comedy, modern-musical genre, and features a brilliantly brisk and energetic score containing many of the composer’s best-known songs.
