Sondheim’s INTO THE WOODS at Studio B July 22-31, 2011

Into the Woods

This summer, Studio ­B Performing Arts Center, the award-winning family community theater, will present performances of the Stephen Sondheim’s hit Broadway musical Into the Woods. The show opens on July 22nd, running the 22nd through the 31st, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Performances are at 7:30 on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 2:30 on Sundays. Tickets cost $15 for adults, $12 for students and seniors, and $10 for children 10 and under.

The show abides by a ‘fractured fairytale’ format. The story first focuses on the cursed Baker and his wife, and then later includes Prince Charming, a wicked Witch, and other classic fairytale characters, all searching for something. As they progress through the woods, they find what they are looking for, but soon discover the consequences of getting what they want.  The show features the talent of local teens and is directed by award-winning director Nick Gould and music director John Green.  Choreographer is Jennie Lynn Patten.

Managing Director DeAnna McDearmont said, “I am excited about presenting the community this show. This is the second summer we have offered a Stephen Sondheim show to the community and with a fairy tale theme it will appeal to all ages. We love to showcase our talented local youth.”
