Watch This, the acclaimed first and only Sondheim repertory company is presenting Sunday in the Park with George at Geelong Performing Arts Centre from 15 to 17 August, 2019.

Sunday in the Park with George was inspired by the French pointillist painter Georges Seurat's painting 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.' The story revolves around George, a fictionalised version of Seurat, who immerses himself deeply in painting his masterpiece, and his great-grandson (also named George), a conflicted and cynical contemporary artist.
