A spell-binding musical adventure into the world of fairy tales.

If you go down into the woods today, you better watch your back.

Set in a far away land running amok with giants, witches, wolves and wicked stepmothers; Into the Woods is a spell-binding musical adventure into the world of fairy tales.

Our story start like this: The baker & his wife want kids, Cinderella wants to go to the ball, Little Red is off to see her grandmother, and Jack just wants his cow to make milk. In the end, Sondheim’s Tony-award-winning classic asks: what happens after ‘happily ever after?’

Retold by a kid in their playroom-turned-blanket-fort, this production takes us back in time. Back to when our lives were safe, warm, and soft, and when the big scary wolf wasn’t lurking around every corner. Into the Woods playfully examines our wish for happy endings, and the parts of stories we wish to ignore.

Just be careful what you wish for.
