Lapine and Sondheim’s musical “Into the Woods” takes everyone's favorite storybook characters and brings them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece - a rare modern classic. The story follows 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, encountering a variety of well-known fairy tale personalities along the way. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
This talented cast includes seniors Sloan Hewitt as the Baker, Carlie Pool as the Baker’s wife, Sophie Walker as Cinderella, Kyler Ayres as Jack, Nathaniel Vilardo in dual roles as the Narrator and Mysterious Man, Maggie Parrett as the Stepmother and so many more.
