Merrily We Roll Along

  • The Barn Theatre 3 Beeches Road Cirencester, GL7 1BN (map)

A Sondheim Musical set in the time frame of 1957 to 1976.

Franklin Shepherd is a successful composer and film producer at the height of his Hollywood career and Broadway fame. But at what cost?

Opening at an extravagant party in Bel Air, Merrily We Roll Along takes you back in time through the personal and professional lives of three estranged friends, Frank, Mary and Charley. With a stunning score by Stephen Sondheim (Into the Woods, Sweeney Todd, Company) and witty book by George Furth (Company), the show expertly blends the excitement and energy of a fast-paced musical with a poignant and emotional contemporary story about the importance of staying true to one's ideals.

The team behind Cirencester’s sell-out production of Fiddler on the Roof return to present this thrilling and compelling Broadway fable about friendship, compromise and the high price of success.
