Palm Canyon Theatre
Palm Canyon Theatre opened its doors for the first production in the fall of 1997 with “The Desert Song” by Romberg, Harbach, and Hammerstein, setting the stage, as it were, for a series of award winning productions for more than 10 years.
Now entering it’s tenth season, Palm Canyon Theatre is on firmer financial footing, and is delighted that its offerings continue to expand. In recent years we’ve been pleased and proud to sponsor Jeanette Knight’s Third Sunday Improv Jam, Second Sunday Shakespeare and Spotlight on Musicals with Nate Brown in Concert.
A Little Night Music is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by Hugh Wheeler. Inspired by the Ingmar Bergman film Smiles of a Summer Night, it involves the romantic lives of several couples. Its title is a literal English translation of the German name for Mozart’s Serenade No. 13 for strings in G major, Eine kleine Nachtmusik. The musical includes the popular song “Send in the Clowns”. Since its original 1973 Broadway production, the musical has enjoyed professional productions in the West End, by opera companies, in a 2009 Broadway revival, and elsewhere, and it is a popular choice for regional groups. It was adapted for film in 1977, with Harold Prince directing and Elizabeth Taylor, Len Cariou, Lesley-Anne Down and Diana Rigg starring.
