‘Merrily We Roll Along’ at Delbarton from February 7-9.

The Delbarton Abbey Players are proud to present three performances of Merrily We Roll Along on stage in the Delbarton Fine Arts Center (FAC) from Friday, February 7 to Sunday, February 9.

 

Based on the original play by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, the plot tells the story of Franklin Shepard, a former successful composer of Broadway musicals who abandons friends and career to start a new life as a big-time Hollywood movie producer. The action begins at the height of Frank’s West Coast fame and traces his life backwards, showing brief glimpses of the most important moments in his life.  As the years roll back over two decades of his life, the audience witnesses how Frank evolved from poor composer to wealthy producer -- and what he gave up to get there.

Talented Delbarton actors and visiting thespians from area schools have been rehearsing for months to bring three Merrily performances to the FAC stage on Friday, Feb 7 at 7pm, Saturday, February 8 at 7pm, and Sunday, February 9 at 2pm. Don’t miss this Abbey Players production! Tickets are currently on sale online HERE.
