Fairy tales but not as you know them!
Once upon a time… that’s how all good fairy tales begin!
Into the Woods, directed by Emma Bishop at Harlequin Musical Theatre is no different.
Audiences are taken on a whirl wind tour through well-known stories of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack & the Beanstalk, the Baker and his wife, Rapunzel and many more as they embark on a quest for special objects that will break a spell, swindling and lying along the way.
While everyone’s wish is granted, the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results!
This fractured fairy tale musical by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim begins as a lively irreverent fantasy and becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the consequences of our actions.
Into the Woods was thrust into the mainstream in the 2014 Disney movie musical with Meryl Streep, Anna Kendrick, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine and James Corden.
The excellent cast and orchestra, led by Musical Director Andrew Christie at the Harlequin will bring this ever so slightly dark musical with its quirky stories to life on stage between June 26 and July 10, 2021.
