Experience magic of Broadway with "Simply Sondheim"

March 11, 2024

Simply Sondheim, a celebration of the music of Broadway hit-maker, Stephen Sondheim, will perform in concert at University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College CHARTS Theater Thursday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets are available at www.uaptc.edu/charts or by calling (501) 812-2387. Prices are $45 + taxes/fees for orchestra tickets and $35 + taxes/ fees for mezzanine tickets. UA – Pulaski Tech student tickets are free (two free tickets per student). Students must show their student IDs at the box office. Group discounts are available for groups of 10 or more. Parking is easily accessible near the door.

The four cast members, Dan Drew, Katie Sweeney, Michaela Groth, and Shane Heidecker, bring to life more than 30 songs from Sondheim’s works. Stephen Sondheim is widely acknowledged as the most innovative, influential, and important composer and lyricist in Broadway history. From tender love songs to soaring ballads and raucous show stoppers, the Simply Sondheim show will transport you through some of the best and most famous songs written for the stage and screen.

When Stephen Sondheim died in 2021 at the age of 91, his obituary in the New Your Times described him as a “relentlessly innovative theatrical force.” Simply Sondheim brings this force to life with all the musical drama and lyrical wit that only Stephen Sondheim could create.

These popular songs are a greatest-hits collection pulled from Sondheim’s most famous stage productions including West Side Story; A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum; A Little Night Music; Sweeney Todd; The Demon Barber of Fleet Street; Sunday in the Park with George; and Into the Woods.

The Center for Humanities and Arts (CHARTS) is located at UA–Pulaski Technical College’s Main campus at 3000 West Scenic Drive in North Little Rock, Arkansas on the University of Arkansas-Pulaski Technical College Main Campus. Opened in 2016, the 90,000 square-foot facility houses a 452-seat proscenium theater for concerts, theater performances, recitals, and other events.
