Into the Woods
So Popera Productions presents Into the Woods at the Illawarra Performing Arts Centre from 17 May – 25 May 2019.
Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim | Book by James Lapine.
From the team that brought you Singin’ in the Rain, Chicago and Disney’s The Little Mermaid comes an all-new production of the Tony Award-winning musical.
Into the Woods will take you on an imaginative, darkly comical journey through the tales of the Brothers Grimm.
As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch (Michele Lansdown), a village Baker (Joshua Combes) and his wife (Tanya Boyle) are childless. Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the woods to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch’s beauty and deliver them a child.
During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfil a wish.
But true to the age-old saying, be careful what you wish for.
Immerse yourself in Sondheim’s incredible score – a true modern classic – as all your favourite fairy-tale characters are brought to life.
Ages 13+. Contains smoke, strobe effects and loud noises.
