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!

The actors were very good with strong voices. The use of the stage was well done. The sound at the Grove needs to be upgraded. That will greatly increase the enjoyment of the evening.

Description

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.
