INTO THE WOODS JR.
A new take on a groundbreaking musical fairytale about wishes and the choices we make.
Following the success of Hunter Drama’s Senior Musical Theatre production of Chicago in 2018, comes a beautifully staged outdoor re-imagining of this renowned musical theatre staple.
Be careful what you wish for as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale comes to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical. Into the Woods JR. features all of your favorite characters – Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.
The musical centers on 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 and wind up changed forever.
With unforgettable performances, Into the Woods JR. showcases the talents of Hunter Drama’s Senior Musical Theatre Ensemble under the stars in Pacific Park, Newcastle East.
