James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.
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.
One of Sondheim's most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy.

What's it like to be in a ROYAL show?
Fun! Kids and adults have a great time working together to produce a great show. Whether you're on stage or part of the stage/tech crew you're a valuable part of a terrific show.
Being part of a ROYAL show is a big commitment not only for the individual but for their family. Rehearsals are as frequent as 3 times per week, and for the week prior to the show we rehearse each evening at the theatre.
All the hard work is worth it and a life-long memory is yours to show for it!
