Come "Into the Woods" Nov. 4-6
Oct. 11, 2016
It will be the forest and not the fields that are alive with the sound of music at 7 p.m. on Nov. 4 and 5 and at 2p.m. on Nov. 6, when Duanesburg Jr./Sr. High School students present "Into the Woods JR." at the high school gymnasium. General admission is just $7. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The production is an adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's and James Lapine's Tony Award-winning musical fairytale about wishes and choices and features 38 students from grades 7-12.
With a book by James Lapine and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, “Into the Woods JR.” is based on the Broadway production that won several Tony Awards, including Best Score, Best Book and Best Actress in a Musical. The musical follows a baker and his wife, who learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door.
The couple embarks on a quest, swindling, deceiving and stealing from such already-victimized characters as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (fresh off the beanstalk!) to secure the special objects required to break the spell. However, the story doesn’t simply end “happily ever after,” as each character must face the consequences of his or her decision.
“Into the Woods JR.” is presented at Duanesburg Jr./Sr. High School through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI, 421 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019; phone: (212) 541-4684; www.MTIShows.com.
