Theatre Night - 'A Little Night Music'

Thursday, 3 May 2018

(Bookings close strictly on Friday, 23 February 2018)

Theatre Night this year will commence with the production of ‘A Little Night Music’—presented by the Gilbert and Sullivan Society. In turn of the century Sweden, trysts abound.

The lawyer Fredrik Egerman has married the virginal 18-year old Anne, with whom Fredrik’s son, the melancholy academic Henrik, has fallen in love. Desiree Armfeldt, a stage actress of great beauty (and a reputation for taking on as many lovers as she does theatrical roles) is involved with the buffoonish Count Carl Magnus Malcolm, the husband of the cynical and wryly comedic Countess Charlotte Malcolm. When Desiree spots her old flame Fredrik Egerman in the audience of her most recent production, however, her interest in him is immediately rekindled. All parties meet for a 'Weekend in the Country' at Desiree’s mother, Madame Armfeldt’s, estate, where the tangled web of romantic involvements continues to surprise us with its twists and turns.

Featuring the classic song 'Send in the Clowns' and Sondheim's beautiful, lush score, 'A Little Night Music' is a story of love, nostalgia, regret and humour set amongst the magic of music on a summer’s night. Guests will be expected to arrive at the Club at 1745 to have a two-course menu with Club beverages before heading to the theatre at 1900. The Arts Theatre is located on 15-minute walk from the Club. Members may request transport if required. After the theatre finishes guests will walk back to the Club for tea, coffee and chocolates which will conclude the evening.

Please be advised that we are not able to extend bookings for this event past 23 February 2018 at 1200. We encourage members to book as soon as possible to avoid missing out on this popular event.
