April 23, 2014 at 2:51 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - Pleasant Valley Productions announces that it will be holding auditions for its summer production of Stephen Sondheim’s Company.  Auditions will be held Wednesday, April 23 from 8pm-10pm and Thursday, April 24 from 7pm-10pm at the Pleasantdale Presbyterian Church.  Callbacks will be held by appointment on Thursday, May 1.  Performances will be July 17-20 at Luna Stage in West Orange.

Company will feature a multi-ethnic cast.  Please prepare an audition song from Company or a similar style show. Those auditioning should bring their own sheet music (written in the correct key) and be prepared to sing 16 bars. You may be also asked to learn a brief dance combination.  If you have a head shot, please bring it with you.  All roles are open.  The production is directed by Elizabeth Rogers with music direction by Ilene Greenbaum and produced by Greenbaum, Howie Tilkin, and Camille Vecchio-DiLorenzo.

On the night of his 35th birthday, confirmed bachelor Robert contemplates his unmarried state. Over the course of a series of dinners, drinks, and even a wedding, his friends - "those good and crazy people my married friends" - explain the pro's and con's of taking on a spouse. The habitually single Robert is forced to question his adamant retention of bachelorhood during a hilarious, yet accurate, array of interactions. This in-depth character study piece by Stephen Sondheim and George Furth includes a score with such classics as "Being Alive", "Ladies Who Lunch", and "Marry Me a Little.”

We typically don’t thank our body parts because they seldom leave us.  Most of us have not experienced unfortunate accidents or suffered the horrible consequences of war; tragic events  which might cause us to lose a limb.
