Stephen Sondheim's "Company" To Be Presented At UCPAC

Stephen Sondheim's "Company" To Be Presented At UCPAC

(RAHWAY, NJ) -- A local production of the 1970 Broadway musical comedy Company, written by American composer Stephen Sondheim, is scheduled to have a run beginning September 8 at the Union County Performing Arts Center’s Hamilton Stage. The musical revolves around Bobby based on the life of a self confirmed bachelor and his married friends. He takes a deep look into his life while his married friends explain the pros and cons of marriage.

Bobby is young man living in New York City whose friends are coming together to throw him a surprise 35 th birthday party. The story is comprised of short vignettes presented in no particular order and explores the complications of adult relationships. Humor, honesty, and beautifully written music will create a personal space for each audience member to find similarities within their own lives.

This local production of Company is directed by Khy Garner and stars lead Tim Walton, last year’s Fearless ICON Champion. ICON is an annual fall competition between New Jersey’s best musical theater voices. Part of his prize was the opportunity to be the lead performer of his dream show (Company) put on at UCPAC. The time has come for Walton to cash in on his prize and give the performance of a lifetime.

The cast is made up of real-life teachers, a doctor, a computer technician, and salesmen just to name a few. It includes Alissa Valiante, AJ Meeker, Jenna Zielinski, Steven Leschanka, Molly Frieri Neff, Greg Perkins, Karen Pierson, Jason Cesar, Mimi Grancis, Kirk Lambert, Marisa Cucuzza, Jenne Carey, Cherisse Bonefont, Jessica Musolina, Hanna Wasserman, Debbie Miller Nelson, and Colleen Fritzen.

The show will open on September 8 at 8PM with repeat evening performances on September 9, 15, and 16. Two matinee performances will be held on September 10 and 17 at 2PM. General Admission tickets are available for $22 for each performance at www.ucpac.org.
