Watch Party - "Our Time, a Collage of Records from Williams"

 

The run of “Our Time” was cut short due to the pandemic in the Spring of 2019. The good news is that we are able to offer our community this virtual screening!

“Our Time” is a celebration of the 90th birthday of Stephen Sondheim ’50, the Department of Theatre, Department of Music, and Cap & Bells are collaborating on a festival of performance and scholarship surrounding Sondheim’s work in musical theatre, and his legacy to the generations of artists (including other Williams alumni) who followed. The Theatre Department is pleased to present a new stage work, set at Williams College during the time when Sondheim was an undergraduate, which explores the history, mythology and identity of this institution. The play, devised by Ilya Khodosh ’08 and Omar Sangare, will dramatize pivotal moments through which Williams became itself; how it both evolves and remains constant; and how it has represented the promise of liberal arts education and the American dream.
