Enjoy a little bit of old Broadway in Downtown New West! We are excited to sponsor “A Little Night Music”, playing live at the Anvil Centre by Patrick Street Productions.
This cultured musical is inspired by Smiles of a Summer Night, a 1955 Swedish comedy film directed by Ingmar Bergman; as well as the theatrical musical A Little Night Music by Stephen Sondheim which opened on Broadway in 1973.

Set in the 1950’s, A Little Night Music centers around the romantic lives of several couples. The story is filled with love triangles and affairs that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Nothing compares to seeing a musical live; when you’re in your seat and the theatre lights go down, you know you’re in for a treat!

Elizabeth is a talented 13 year old girl who has a passion for singing, acting and dancing. She is a Canadian triple threat in entertainment!
