Side By Side By Sondheim poster


In April 2011, our production of Side By Side By Sondheim premiered in Sydney and toured Australia until November 2012.

Side By Side By Sondheim is a celebration of the early work of Stephen Sondheim in shows that revolutionised musical theatre.

The show was directed by Stuart Maunder, with musical direction by Craig Renshaw.

On Friday 20 April 2012, we presented a very special concert version of Side By Side By Sondheim at Theatre Royal, Sydney. This unique entertainment event featured some of Australia’s most popular and acclaimed performers, headlined by the West End and Broadway star Ruthie Henshall, who made her Australian debut in the concert.
