This will be HSOW’s first musical theatre production. A Little Night Music tells the story of middle-aged lawyer Fredrik Egerman’s search for sex and love. He spends most of the show married to his teenage trophy wife, Anne. The problem for Fredrik is that Anne refuses to have sex with him. As a result, Fredrik’s eyes begin to wonder, and he ends up having a sexual encounter with an old fling, the actress, Desirée Armfeldt. Meanwhile, Desirée is seeing a married dragoon, Count Carl-Magnus. Further, during Fredrik’s first marriage, he produced an extremely gloomy son, Henrik. After a weekend in a country chateau, Fredrik ends up in a duel with the Count over Desirée and Henrik and Anne end up falling in love with each other.

It’s full of great songs, including A Weekend in the Country, the Miller’s Son, You Must Meet My Wife and Send in the Clowns.
