FTC Presents: Company

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Sarah Zerod
Musical Direction by Chris Burcheri
Produced by Haley Mankin

On the night of his birthday, Robert struggles to think of a wish to make as he blows out his birthday candles. The lone bachelor, surrounded by “those good and crazy people” — his married friends — Robert is uncertain whether he should simply be happy with his lot or whether he should wish for his own romantic partner. Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, and thoughtful conversations, Robert attempts to understand the pros and cons of marriage from his diverse and frequently hilarious friends, and begins to make sense of his own persistent bachelorhood. Company, Stephen Sondheim’s groundbreaking modern musical, is a mature, intelligent, and wildly funny look at relationships, vulnerability, and “being alive.”

FTC Presents: Next Fall

Play by Geoffrey Nauffts
Directed by Elizabeth Martinez
Produced by Adam Mansell

Geoffrey Nauffts’ play, Next Fall, takes a witty and provocative look at faith, commitment and unconditional love. While the play’s central story focuses on the five-year relationship between Adam and Luke, the beautifully crafted narrative goes beyond a typical love story. This timely and compelling new American play forces us all to examine what it means to “believe” and what it might cost us not to.

A new play about a family limping out the door in the morning and coming home no matter what.

FTC Presents: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Directed by SARAH ZEROD

In a world where heads always wins and pirates can happen to anyone, this fabulously inventive, existentialist tragicomedy thrusts two of Shakespeare’s most incidental characters into the limelight. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern have been summoned to Elsinore by the king. Their purpose: to glean what afflicts Hamlet. The intrepid, if somewhat bewildered, travelers make their journey, meeting a ragtag group of players along the way. Unsure of both the game and the rules, the until-now-unsung heroes are destined for a more chilling end.
