*SEMINAR SCHEDULE:

Session 1: Revisiting** *_*Company*_* *

May 1, 7:30-8:30pm_

This isn’t the first time Signature’s done Company_. Following Signature’s production of Company_ in 1993, it produced a concert version in 2001. Director Eric Schaeffer will share his vision for _Company: why he’s revisiting it, why this show has proven to be so popular for over 40 years, and how this production will differ from any other production of Company. *

Session 2: The Sound of Sondheim**

*_May 8, 7:30-9:00pm__

Spend an evening with Eric Schaeffer, musical director John Kalbfleisch, and members of the cast to discuss the mastermind behind not only _Company, but Sweeney Todd_, Assassins_, Sunday in the Park with George, and countless others as well. Listen to selections from Company and discuss with others the power of Sondheim’s work and why and how Sondheim has become Signature’s signature. *

Session 3: Tech Rehearsal**

*_May 15, 7:00-9:00pm__

_The sets, props, lights, costumes, and actors all come together to bring this Tony Award®–winning musical to life. Watch a technical rehearsal as all the elements are integrated into “the production.”

Session 4: The Music*

*_May 17, 12:00-1:30pm__

Session 5: The Final Dress Rehearsal**

You’ve heard the music, you’ve seen rehearsal, you’ve discussed the show. Now, join Signature Theatre as a part of _Company’s first audience at the “invited dress.” See how the production comes together as the final element – the audience – is added. Be there front and center.
