Vanguard at Westminster Theatre (Point Loma) opens its 2016 Season with Stephen Sondheim’s Tony award-winning musical comedy Company playing at Westminster Theatre in July, 2016. Company’s plot revolves around Robert, a 35-year-old-turning bachelor who is unable to commit fully to a steady relationship, let alone marriage. A series of vignettes follows five couples who are his best friends, as well as his relationships with his three girlfriends. Each scene, in its quirky and hilarious way, increasingly inspires Bobby to tie the knot before it’s too late. Having accumulated 17 Tony awards during multiple Broadway runs since opening in 1970, Company was one of the first musicals to deal with adult themes and relationships, focusing on dating and marriage in New York City, and features the songs Being Alive, Side By Side, Ladies Who Lunch, Not Getting Married Today and Company.

Taking advantage of the beautiful park setting for all to enjoy, Sounds of the City will offer games and activities including Giant Jenga, Corn Hole, bocce ball, checkers and Twister. There will also be a family area featuring “make-your-own-instrument,” an obstacle course and “My First Violin Class” where students of all ages can try their hand at playing the violin led by a professional instructor.
