News   Gary Griffin Will Direct Stratford A Little Night Music; Casting Announced Casting has been announced for the Stratford Festival's upcoming production of the classic Stephen Sondheim-Hugh Wheeler musical A Little Night Music, which will begin previews at the Canadian venue May 21, 2016, prior to an official opening June 21.

The cast will feature Ben Carlson as Fredrik Egerman, Cynthia Dale as Countess Charlotte Malcolm, Yanna McIntosh as Desirée Armfeldt, Juan Chioran as Carl-Magnus, Sara Farb as Petra and Alexis Gordon as Anne, with Matt Alfano as Frid, Gabriel Antonacci as Henrik, André Morin as Bertrand and Kimberly Ann-Truong as Fredrika.
