The Kentwood Players theater group will present a production of “A Little Night Music,” with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and based on the book by Hugh Wheeler, beginning Friday, November 6th through Saturday, December 12th at the Westchester Playhouse.
Performances are scheduled at 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays at the playhouse, 8301 Hindry Ave. in Westchester.
