Up Next: Into The Woods
We're thrilled to announce our 2016 Summer Musical Theatre Intensive: the wildly popular, wildly challenging, just plain wild Into The Woods.
June 28, 29 & 30 at 7:00pm
Matinee June 30 at 1:00 pm
Tickets for evening performances are $10 each.
The matinee is a "pay what you can" scholarship fundraiser ($5 suggested donation).
With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, Into The Woods intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from "Little Red Riding Hood", "Jack and the Beanstalk", "Rapunzel", and "Cinderella." The musical is tied together by an original story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, their relationship with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interactions with other storybook characters during their journey. Recommended for ages 10+.
