Into the Woods

September 14-16 & 21-23

Into the Woods, by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, is an imaginative retelling of several familiar fairy tales.  The stories of Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel  all merge together as a baker and his wife set out into the woods to collect the necessary items to lift a curse placed on their family by the witch who lives next door.  Into the Woods goes beyond the simple morality lessons of the fairy tales that make up its parts, and explores the nuances of human nature that cause people to wish for changes in their lives, and the consequences of having those wishes granted.  A deeply moving story, with lots of laughs, beautiful music, and a message that will make you think, Into the Woods is not a show to be missed.

Friday and Saturday evening performances at 7:30pm. Sunday Matinees at 3pm.
