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 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 year, in order to give our actors even more opportunity to be on stage, we will be producing both "Into the Woods" and "Into the Woods Jr."! These will be two separate productions with performances running during the same time period. All 11-15 yr old actors are eligible to be in both shows. We are so excited to be able to offer this awesome opportunity to our students!
Auditions will be held Sunday, April 11th with callbacks on Sunday May 2nd. Both held at Bright Lights Theatre, 35 E North Ave, Glendale Heights, IL 60139. Reserve your audition time spot HERE.
