DCS presents Into the Woods

IntotheWoods

Produced by special arrangement with Music Theatre Int..

The Story: An ambivalent   Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood? A Prince Charming with a   roving eye? A Witch…who raps? They’re all among the cockeyed characters in   James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairy tale. When a Baker and his   Wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they   embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell,   swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack   (the one who climbed the beanstalk). Everyone’s wish is granted at the end of   Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with   disastrous results. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of   The Princess Bride becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and   the stories we tell our children. One of Sondheim’s most popular works, INTO THE WOODS is a timeless yet   relevant piece and a rare modern classic.
