Into the Woods is an epic fairytale about wishes, family, and the choices we make. James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching. The story 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. Everyone's wish is granted, however, the consequences of their actions bring surprising results.  Direction by Alan Tulin. Musical direction by Joshua Elson.
