HOW MUCH: Tickets are $15, $12 for seniors and students. Tickets can be purchased online at www.summittheatre.org or by visiting one of Lee's Summit's two Hy-Vee stores.
WHAT THE SHOW IS ABOUT: The show takes an intimate look at the life words, music and career of Stephen Sondheim, as told by him through a series of projections and songs, Bumgardner says. The cast sings 19 songs – some that were re-worked from the show and are taken out of their original context, some that never made it into a show and several well-known blockbusters.
The cast includes Abbey Downs from Blue Springs and Julie McDaniel from Independence.
