2016 -2017 Musical "Into The Woods"

Book by James Lapine, Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.  The musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests.  Originally Directed on Broadway by James Lapine,  Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick.  Into the Woods
Is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. Right held by Musical Theatre International (MTI).  


Though it is based on “fairy tales”, it is not a musical we would recommend for young children.

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's 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 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.


We regret to advise you that one of our leads for this year's production of Into the Woods will not be able to perform due to health reasons.
 We have been fortunate to secure an experienced replacement who is familiar with the role but, unfortunately, this individual is unavailable for Friday June 9 and Friday June 16.
We have therefore decided to cancel these two performances. If you have already ordered tickets for either of those nights, we will be contacting you by phone or email about alternate date options or a refund.
The Staff Arts community appreciates your understanding and apologizes for any inconvenience. We extend our prayer and wishes for a speedy recovery to our cast member.
