Into the Woods, Mar 19-29, 2015
Music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; book by James Lapine
Stephen Sondheim's fairy tale masterpiece comes to life with one of the most vocally talented casts ever assembled at Newnan Theatre Company!
A childless Baker (Candler Budd) and his wife (Emily Budd) are sent into the woods by the Witch next door (Sofia Siraj) to fetch the ingredients to a potion she wants to make. Only then will she lift the curse she put on their house long ago when the Baker's father stole the magic beans from her garden.
Along the way they encounter Jack (Gabriel Caballero); Cinderella (Sarah Vinson); Rapunzel (Kat Duncan); and Little Red Riding Hood (Katie Timmins), each one of whom holds one of the keys to their happiness.
At the end of Act I all the characters seem to have gotten their wish and reached their Happy Ever After, but in Act II the consequences of everyone's actions begin to play out, and they find that perhaps it's not so wise to steal from the Giant or stray from the path. In the end, they must pull together in the face of tragedy to survive.
