The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make. James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyones 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 Kings 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 Witchs curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyones wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
One of Sondheims most popular works, Into the Woods is produced by the Sheldons 25-year-old resident community theater company, Phoenix Theatre. It features local talent in a musically sophisticated show filled with wonder, magic, and sometimes dark comedy.
