"Once upon a time in a far-off kingdom lived a young maiden, a sad young lad and a childless baker with his wife . . ." So begins this hit musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine that whisks the audience away to a fairy-tale land of witches, wolves and giants.
'Into the Woods' brings to musical life Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Ridinghood and many other well-known Grimm's fairy-tale characters. Interwoven with these classic tales is the story of a Baker and his wife, whose longing for a child is thwarted by a mischievous Witch living next door. Wishes are fulfilled, old curses reversed and many lessons learned as these colourful characters journey through the woods in the hope of living 'happy ever after'.
James Lapine's clever and witty book and Stephen Sondheim's unforgettable music and lyrics combine to create a unique piece of theatre that has thrilled audiences on both sides of the Atlantic since its premiere in 1987, winning 3 Tony Awards including Best Book and Best Score.
Directed by Paul Longhurst, with Musical Direction by Jonathan Butcher and with Production Design in the creative hands of Jill 'Wiggy' Wilson, this production should prove to be a feast for the eyes and ears, and with its delightful mix of classic fairy-tales is sure to appeal to audiences of all ages.
All proceeds from this production are being donated to the Barn 2000 Appeal raising much needed funds for the theatre's improvement.
