Enjoy good Company

Rehearsals are underway for South Coast Choral and Arts Society's next musical production, Company.

Created in 1970 by esteemed composer Stephen Sondheim, Company reflects on the life and relationships of Robert, a 35-year-old bachelor.

Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks and even a wedding, Robert's friends explain the pros and cons of taking on a spouse.

Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during this hilarious array of interactions.

The talented cast includes many faces that will be familiar to local theatregoers including Daniel Maley (Danny in Zest's Grease), Emma Lynn (Alice in SCCAS's The Addams Family), Shannen Beckett (Elle in Investigator's Legally Blonde), and Flynn Turley (Bert in VHHS's Mary Poppins).

Director Billie Turner (Madame Thénardier in SCCAS's Les Misérables) is excited to be directing her first show with SCCAS.

Tickets are available at www.sccas.org.au or from Toop Motors, Victor Harbor RAA Office, 66 Ocean Street.

Performances are from October 18 to 26 at the Victor Harbor Town Hall.
