The setting is the mystical woods and 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.
“When I first learned that 'Into the Woods' had been chosen to close out Town and Gown Theatre’s 65th season, I wondered just what I had gotten myself into,” said Director Anna Davis. “This show, one of the most widely produced musicals out there, was a daunting one from the start.” Davis describes the show as a beautiful fairy tale that is about growing up.
The audition process took place in early April with nearly 80 people vying for 18 roles. “My cast is very hard working and eager to perform. They have taken a lot of ownership of the show from helping build props and working on the set to scheduling additional rehearsals to make sure that everything looks and sounds amazing,” said Davis.
