INTO THE WOODS JR. - Be careful what you wish for as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale comes to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical with all of your favorite characters – Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch. Into The Woods Jr is a lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.
The musical centers on 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 and wind up changed forever.
With unforgettable roles, minimal dancing and no chorus, Into the Woods JR. showcases an ensemble of talented singers and actors. The sophisticated score has been adapted to make it more accessible to young performers.
