Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s groundbreaking musical fairy tale about wishes and the choices we make.
Performances June 5 – 14, 2020 (Friday and Saturday at 7pm, Sunday at 2pm)
Be careful what you wish for, as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairy tale 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.
This Jr version concludes with bright and cheery “Happily Ever After” ending (which is the end of Act I in the full version).
