First the good- the venue was nice, parking was easy, the stage set up was good, and there were some really great voices. Standouts include the Maid, Petra, who gave an incredible performance, both in acting and singing. Her song was the best of the night. Also, Desiree was relatively good, as was Anne. Both had nice singing voices, but there acting wasn't as great. As for the men, Henrik had a great voice, but didn't feel right for the role, and the Count was pretty good. The rest of the men were rather weak. There were several forgotten lines during our production, and I cringed at the acting. My father and I enjoyed it most when closing our eyes and listening to the music.
A Little Night Music is so rarely produced that I recommend taking advantage of it. It was nice to see a rarer Sondheim. Just don't come in with huge expectations.

For a small local theater, this was a stellar production. The voices were uniformly excellent and the piano a nice touch instead of canned music. It cost a little more than a movie and the whole family really enjoyed it.
Good work - Grove!
This “Send in the Clowns,” Stephen Sondheim musical, which is currently playing on Broadway, is the theatrical event of the year! Based on Ingmar Bergman’s film, Smiles of a Summer Night_, this romantic musical is witty and urbane, set in waltz time. The action takes place in a weekend country house in turn-of-the century Sweden, where surprising liaisons, long-simmering passions and a taste of love’s endless possibilities are all brought to light. Directed by Frank Minano and featuring long time Grove favorites Ann Thomas, Angeline Carr (_BARK!), Bob Stilwell, Vil Towers and Sherri Jones (seen last year in Church Basement Ladies_). The cast also features Tess Jose, (_BARK!), Donna Minano, Walt Schaefer, Amanda Gettinger, Joseph Arana, Autumn Powers, Walt Schaefer, Valerie Jasso, Ryan Harton and Kelley Goode.
