Into the Woods JR.
June 1, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - June 3, 2017 @ 7:00 pm
Students from TAS Middle School will offer Armidale an amusingly different way to think about everyone’s favourite fairy tale characters through their production of Into the Woods JR.
With a book by James Lapine and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods JR. is based on the Broadway production which 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 get the special objects required to break the spell. However, the story doesn’t simply end “happily ever after” as each character must now face the consequences of his/her decision.
