Into The Woods
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Shawn K. Summerer
Musical Direction by Catherine Rahm

Choreographed by Alison Mattiza

Produced by Lori A. Marple-Pereslete and Tony Pereslete
November 14 – December 20, 2014
Into the Woods is tied together by an original story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, their dealings with a Witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey. Join Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood, Rapunzel, Jack the Giant Slayer, and many other famous storybook characters as they each venture into the foreboding woods in search of magical items, love, money, or simply a purpose in life. This classic mash-up of Grimm’s fairy tales teaches all of us the true consequences of what it means to “get your wish.”

The original Broadway production won the 1988 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award and the Drama Desk Award for Best Musical, and the original cast recording won a Grammy Award. The show was nominated for ten Tony Awards, and won three: Best Score (Stephen Sondheim), Best Book (James Lapine) and Best Actress in a Musical (Joanna Gleason).

Due to high demand for tickets, two performances have been added: Thursdays, December 11 and December 18.
