Show Synopsis

“Be careful what you wish for, as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale comes to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical.  Into the Woods JR. features all of your favorite characters — Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch — in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.

The musical centers on a baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse, and wind up changed forever.” MTI

 Why Into the Woods, Jr.?

Inspired by the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Into the Woods, Jr. drives home how no one is alone, and how there is always a glimmer of hope and inspiration in the face of adversity, challenges, and tragedy. The mix-match group of reluctant fairy tale characters learn the meaning of empathy and perseverance as they pursue their hopes and dreams in a world that seems to be stacked against them.

 Into the Woods, Jr. provides students with a variety of featured roles, in both principal and supporting characters. This show provides many opportunities for students to shine and develop their skills as performers.

From Sade Aset, Director:

Into the Woods feels like the perfect show to direct during the return of live theatre! Over the course of the pandemic, I have rediscovered my love for fantasy. I recently got into Dungeons and Dragons, and it’s been nurturing and indulging in my imagination in ways that I am excited to carry back into theatre. With several iconic fairy tales woven with melodies that spark mischief and magic, this show is bound to be a spectacle full of fun characters, spooky scenery, and greens, greens, so many greens!
