Music & Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim | Book: James Lapine
Directed by Marianne Pillsbury
In the days leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, Georges Seurat is struggling to make meaningful art and maintaining a relationship with his lover, Dot. Amid the scorn of the artistic community, Seurat’s artistic ability thrives while his love diminishes. A century later, Seurat’s descendant – named George and also an artist – finds himself burnt out and in search of what artistic path to follow, but he finds the answer to his future in the past. This production features an all student cast (ages 12+).

CONTENT/AGE RESTRICTIONS: SUNDAY IN THE PARK WITH GEORGE is a fictional biographical journey of the life of the painter Georges Seurat. It focuses both on the relationship between the artist and the people around him, and also on the relationship between the artist and his artwork. There is very mild adult themes/innuendo, and some strong words/ language. There are no firm age restrictions for this show – because of the complexity of the intellectually intricate plot STAGES believes the musical play is best suited for audience members ages 10+. This show is a full-length musical performance, with an estimated run time of approximately two+ hours. Please use discretion when purchasing tickets for younger audience members and remember that, as a courtesy to our student performers and fellow audience members, it is STAGES’ policy to not admit infants, toddlers or young children ages 4 and under into any mainstage performance.
