Five Bellevue residents will be on stage as the Bellevue Community College Drama Department presents the Tony Award-winning musical, A Little Night Music, May 16-17 and 21-24.

The five include: Ted Adams, a graduate of Hillside Student Community, in the role of Count Carl-Magnus Malcolm, a military buffoon who is the latest lover of Desiree, the central female character; Cady Smola, who graduated high school as a homeschooled student, playing Petra, a saucy young servant who is the freest of the characters to love and enjoy life; and Sean Glynn, a graduate of Seattle Preparatory School, and Lauren McGhee, a graduate of Sammamish High School, both appearing as characters in the Liebeslieder (love-song) singers, who are central to the musical’s score and storytelling.

Also appearing will be Jenna Levin, a seventh-grader at the Jewish Day School in Bellevue, in the role of young Fredrika Armfeldt, daughter of Desiree, the central female character. Levin is a resident of Sammamish.

Performances begin at 8 p.m. each day, with an additional matinee at 2 p.m. on May 24, in BCC’s Stop Gap Theatre, located in Building E on the south courtyard of BCC’s main campus (3000 Landerholm Circle S.E., Bellevue, at the intersection of S.E. 28th St. and 148th Ave. S.E.).

Tickets, at $12 ($10 students), may be purchased through Ticket Window, at www.ticketwindowonline.com.

Set in 1900, A Little Night Music tells the story of a group of friends and their complicated romantic entanglements. All the men are current, previous, or prospective lovers of the beautiful actress, Desiree, and the other women are all united by their jealousy of her.

A Little Night Music will be directed by BCC drama instructor and program chair Tammis Doyle, with musical direction by BCC music instructor Julie Denninghoff.

More information is available by contacting Lyneen Patnoe at 425-564-3114 or lpatnoe@bcc.ctc.edu.
