Shoreline Theater Department’s “Live! From the Last Night of My Life” opens Thurs., March 3

live last night
Shoreline Community College’s Theater Department is proud to present Seattle-based Wayne Rawley’s “Live! From the Last Night of My Life” in the main campus theater March 3-12.

About the show: Doug Sample is a man who has decided his experiment with life has, for all intents and purposes, failed. He has achieved nothing, accomplished nothing, and has nothing except his graveyard shift at a local gas station and Mini-Mart. He has decided that the best thing for everyone would be if he shot himself in the head, and he is planning to do it right in front of the Mini-Mart’s security cameras at the end of this, his last shift. But before the night is over, Doug will be visited by his past, his present, his possible futures and some particularly annoying customers as he struggles with some of life’s most challenging questions like, “Why should I go on?”, “What does it all mean?”, and perhaps most importantly, “Did I remember to change the cherry syrup in the Slushie Machine?”

Written by Wayne Rawley

night music
Shoreline Community College’s Musical theater department presents their 2016 Opera Workshop with Stephen Sondheim’s 19th century romantic waltz-based operetta/musical,  “A Little Night Music!”

Clive Barnes in the New York Times called the musical “heady, civilized, sophisticated and enchanting.”

The Telegraph wrote that “Sondheim’s lyrics are often superbly witty, his music here, mostly in haunting waltz-time, far more accessible than is sometimes the case. The score positively throbs with love, regret and desire.”

Winner of a Tony for Best Musical and Best Musical Score!

Sondheim creates a stunning tour de force when he takes Ingmar Bergman’s comedy of manners, Smiles of a Summer Night, and turns it into a musical of masterful execution and elegance. Winner of four Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Musical Score, this is a musical work that has forever entranced the world of theatre.

Set in 1900 Sweden, A Little Night Music explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt and the men who love her: a lawyer by the name of Fredrik Egerman and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom. When the traveling actress performs in Fredrik’s town, the estranged lovers’ passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Desirée, Fredrik, Fredrick’s wife, Anne, Desirée’s current lover, the Count, and the Count’s wife, Charlotte. Both men — as well as their jealous wives — agree to join Desirée and her family for a weekend in the country at Desirée’s mother’s estate. With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.

A Little Night Music is full of hilarity, witty and heartbreakingly moving moments of adoration, regret and desire. This dramatic musical celebration of love is perfect to showcase our talented cast of singers and actors, with it’s harmonically-advanced score and masterful orchestrations. And, it contains Sondheim’s popular song, the haunting “Send in the Clowns.”
