Torrey Pines Players’ musical ‘Company’ a hit; Production runs through March 2

The Torrey Pines Players’ musical “Company” opened on Feb. 20 and runs through March 2 at the Torrey Pines High School Black Box Theater.

The Torrey Pines Players’ musical “Company” by George Furth and Stephen Sondheim opened on Feb. 20 at the Torrey Pines High School Black Box Theater. Under the guidance of artistic director Marinee Payne and student director Chad Johnson (11th grade) the cast of 14 brought energy, action, laughter and music to the stage. The live student orchestra, led by musical director Amy Wilcox and student music director Austin Shyu, was phenomenal, and kept the audience tapping their toes and humming the songs long after the play was over.

Debut actor Matthew Henry Livingston (12th grade) shines in his portrayal of Robert — a single man turning 35. His friends are five married couples who share with him the ups and downs of marriage. Meanwhile Robert is juggling three girlfriends, looking for his perfect mate.

The singing, the comedy, the dancing and the stunt moves keep the audience entertained, even if the topics brought up are more of a “grown up “nature.
The entire production is student run — everything from the set design and construction, costume design, make-up, lighting, ticket sales, house management.  “We are just here to help” says teacher Payne.

Will Robert get married? Who will he marry? Come the TPHS Black Box Theater to find out! The show runs Feb. 27 — March 2. Visit tpplayers.com for ticket information on tickets. — Submitted by Bhuvana Ramanathan
