The Broadway hit Company, a Stephen Sondheim-composed musical about the joys and trials of marriage, is set to light up the stage at Sacramento State. The show opens at 8 p.m., Oct. 28 in the University Theatre in Shasta Hall. Performances continue at 8 p.m., Oct. 29, Nov. 3 to 5 and 11 and 12, and at 2 p.m., Oct. 30 and Nov. 6 and 13. A special-priced performance will be at 6:30 p.m., Nov. 2.

Directed by Sacramento State professor Ed Brazo with musical direction by Pete Nowlen, Company offers an insightful look at the love lives of five couples and their friend Bobby, a bachelor who is waiting for that "special someone" with whom he can finally tie the knot. With friends that are all romantically involved, Bobby becomes privy to the less-appealing side of love: fights, plans of affairs, talks of divorce, drinking and drugs, which causes him to consider if he should get married at all.

"The musicals composed by Stephen Sondheim have had a very strong influence in the musical theater world over the past 30 years," says Brazo. "The music and singing style of his shows is difficult and challenging, so we wanted the students to have that challenge this year."

Tickets are $18 general, $12 for students and Sacramento State staff, and $10 for seniors and high school students. Tickets for the special showing at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 2 are $8 general and $5 for students and seniors. They are available through the Sacramento State Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or Tickets.com.
