Set in 1900s Sweden, Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s elegant gem “A Little Night Music” explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desirée Armfeldt, the men who love her, and their jealous wives. When all convene for a weekend in the country at Desirée’s mother’s estate, infinite possibilities for new romances and second chances bring endless surprises.

Every year since 1924, the Blue Hill Troupe has come together for a season of revelry celebrating its three great passions: Theater, Charity and Community. The Troupe’s efforts are rooted in a tradition of performing a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta, and the group also presents a musical theater production as well as a concert series. The all-volunteer Blue Hill Troupe spans all generations and all walks of life. New members, both front and backstage, are accepted each fall at the beginning of the season and are immediately folded into the family where everyone, from singers to stagehands alike, works side-by-side.
