“You think it’s all together
Then something falls apart…”

Inspired by the life of French pointillist painter Georges Seurat, Sunday in the Park with George follows the artist through the trials and tribulations of making his masterpiece while making a life with his lover, Dot. With its soaring score, ingenious lyrics and iconically inventive theatricality, this is one of the greatest pieces of musical theatre.

Crafted by Stephen Sondheim, this Pulitzer, Tony and Olivier Award-winning musical is performed by Mountview’s Musical Theatre students.

Duration: 2 hours 35 minutes, including a 20-minute interval

This amateur production is presented by arrangement with Music Theatre International. All authorised performance materials are also supplied by MTI. mtishows.co.uk
