Music Theatre Presents ‘Into the Woods’

LUU Music Theatre Society would like to invite you to come and watch our second semester Riley Smith production, ‘Into The Woods!’

 

“Be careful what you wish for …”

 

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favourite 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.
