With shows like Sweeney Todd, Into the Woods and A Little Night Music to his credit, Stephen Sondheim is a heavyweight in American musical theatre. Typically, his shows are performed on sprawling Broadway stages. But on Friday and Saturday a group of eight local performers under the direction of Chip McDaniel, Ben Redant and producer Shannon Harasen will be presenting a selection of Sondheim tunes on the small stage at  Creative City Centre (1843 Hamilton St.).

Doors are at 7:30 p.m. both nights and tickets are $15.  The show will also be presented at Creative City Centre on Dec. 13-14. To give you a taste of what to expect, here’s “Color and Light” from a Broadway production of Sunday in the Park with George which was inspired by French pointillist painter Georges Seurat’s 1884 masterpiece A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grand Jatte. The  performers are Bernadette Peters and Mandy Pantinkin.
