SPOT ON — Sunday, June 19th at 3 p.m. 
Byrne Theater

Join Dartmouth Professor of Music Steve Swayne and Associate Artistic Director Sarah Wansley for a lively conversation about the work of Stephen Sondheim and his legacy in the American music theater. Professor Swayne’s 2005 book, How Sondheim Found His Sound, explores Sondheim’s self-described role as a “playwright in song” and his many influences from classical music to film. Professor Swayne will share both personal and academic reflections on Sondheim to give a richer context for our production of Side by Side. The conversation will be inside the Byrne theater, prior to our outdoor performance. Tickets are FREE and open to the public.

Thank you to Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, our season underwriter since 2018.
