NEW CANAAN, Conn. — The New Canaan High School Theatre department is currently in the throws of rehearsals on its musical production, "Into The Woods,” based on the book by James Lapin and the musical score by Stephen Sondheim.
This epic fairytale is about wishes, family and the choices we make. 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.
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 into the woods to break the curse. In the woods, we meet Little Red, who is trying to visit her grandmother, the Wolf who loves tasty little girls, the Witch’s daughter Rapunzel, and the Princes chasing after their loves.
Everyone's wish is granted, but these wishes have consequences. In the end, they learn that the community must come together in order to save each other and their kingdom.
Performances will be on March 17, 18 and 19 at 7 p.m. at the New Canaan High School Auditorium. Tickets are $15 and $18 and can be purchased at the theater website.
