Merrily We Roll Along

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim | Book by George Furth

July 27 – 30, 2017

A Youth Repertory Ensemble Production

The Youth Repertory Theatre program is the only professional training program for student actors and technicians in the Pikes Peak region.

Merrily We Roll Along is a thrilling and compelling Broadway fable about friendship, compromise and the high price of success. Stephen Sondheim and George Furth expertly blend the excitement and energy of a backstage musical with a poignant and emotional contemporary story about the importance of staying true to one’s ideals.

Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards, tracing the lives of wealthy, jaded composer Franklin Shepard and his two estranged friends through each milestone of their personal and professional lives (good and bad). The show ends with a touch of rueful irony, as the three best friends at the start of their careers face a bright future: young, talented and enthusiastic about the worlds waiting to be conquered.
