For the second year running the Festival welcomes the University of Chichester’s celebrated Musical Theatre Festival Company, who this year bring to the stage this rarely performed Sondheim classic, considered one his most startling and affecting achievements which dazzles as a piece of theatre craftsmanship.


Merrily We Roll Along makes a virtue of spilt milk, sour grapes and friendships down the drain. Telling the story backwards may not be the usual formula for a Broadway hit, but Sondheim’s score was a sensation, with audiences finding the life of Hollywood producer Franklin Shepherd compelling as it rolls back 20 years.
