PULLMAN, Wash. — Summer Palace closes its 36th season at Washington State University with Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical “Company,” playing at 7:30 p.m. July 26-28 and Aug. 2-4 in Daggy Hall’s R.R. Jones Theatre.

Julie Wieck of the WSU School of Music and Theatre Arts directs the Broadway classic originally written in 1970. The cast will perform the revised Broadway version updated in 1995.

“Company” follows five married or soon-to-be married couples living in a Manhattan apartment complex and the overly protective feelings they have for their bachelor friend, Robert, whom they are anxious to see wed.

“This show really examines the ups and downs of marriage and relationships,” says Brian MacMillan, who plays Robert in the show. “It has fun, memorable music and a hilarious script…all the makings for a great musical comedy.”

Time Magazine calls “Company” a “landmark musical.” The show is rated PG-13 for language and adult situations. Tickets for all shows are $8 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and $4 for students and can be purchased at the Daggy Hall Box Office, 509/335-7236.
