HORIZON PERFORMING ARTS IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE our third season opener!
MERRILY WE ROLL ALONG
Music and Lyrics by STEPHEN SONDHEIM
Book by GEORGE FURTH
Based on the original play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart
Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick
Originally Directed on Broadway by Harold Prince
Originally produced on Broadway by Lord Grade, Martin, Starger, Robert Fryer, and Harold Prince in Association with Ruth Mitchell and Howard Haines
Show Synopsis: Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards, tracing the lives of wealthy, jaded composer, Franklin Shepard, and his two estranged friends through each milestone of their personal and professional lives (good and bad). The show ends with a touch of rueful irony, as the three best friends at the start of their careers face a bright future: young, talented and enthusiastic about the worlds waiting to be conquered.
Horizon Performing Arts is proud to be producing Merrily We Roll Along as a charity event where half of every ticket sold will go to support the American Alliance for Theatre and Education. All Horizon Performing Arts Staff and Artists will be volunteering their time to bring this show to life for our community. We hope you will come out and be a part of it!
