“Into the Woods” is one of Stephen Sondheim’s most beloved musicals. The fairytale will be performed July 15 – 31 at the Racine Theatre Guild, 2519 Northwestern Ave., Racine.
‘Into the Woods’ synopsis
The story is about a childless baker and his wife who set out to lift the Witch’s curse by journeying into the woods. Along the way, they encounter familiar storybook characters. Jack with his beanstalk, Cinderella with her prince, Rapunzel with her tower, and Little Red Riding Hood with her wolf. Along with their epic quest, they are granted all of their wishes, but what are the consequences when their dreams come true?
“Into the Woods” is darkly comical and tunefully touching. The imaginative musical is a timeless classic that appeals to people of adult ages. The characters are from children’s fairytales, but due to some adult material, this performance may not be suitable for younger viewers.
