In the Wings Productions presents Into the Woods
Mar 16 @ 8:00 PM – 10:00 PM

The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with a little help from Stephen Sondheim in Into the Woods, an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make. 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. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
