Merrily We Roll Along

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 
Directed by Jason Langley
Musical Director Peter Rutherford

Featuring Bachelor of Fine Arts (Music Theatre) and Bachelor of Fine Arts (Design and Production) students

Merrily We Roll Along tells the story of three friends, and how their lives and friendship change over twenty years; it focuses particularly on Franklin Shepard, a once-talented composer of musicals who, over those twenty years, abandons his friends and songwriting career to become a producer of Hollywood movies. The show's story reveals this by moving backwards in time. It begins in 1976 at the friends' lowest moment, and gradually moves back until 1957, at their youthful best. This is Stephen Sondheim at his best.
