Book by James Lapine, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by Daniel Begin and Brad Reinking
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.
With only two rehearsals, join the fun as our Young Company puts together an entire production in only 24 hours!
Proceeds from the 24-Hour Musical will go to Fund-A-Need, our scholarship program that supports Young Company students throughout the year by removing financial barriers to participation. By participating in this program, you personally will play an integral role in expanding access to other young actors just like you!
This special presentation will be performed by the students of our Young Company as part of their 24-Hour Musical challenge! Proceeds will benefit our Education Assistance Fund.
