CFCArts Presents Into the Woods
August 22, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
One event on August 23, 2019 at 7:30 pm
From the creative team behind “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”, “Joseph… Dreamcoat”, “Guys and Dolls”, and “The Music Man”, Sondheim’s fairytale masterpiece “Into The Woods” takes the stage this August. Classic fairytale characters collide in the ultimate cautionary tale: Be careful what you wish for, because things are not always what they seem.
When the Baker and his wife are visited by the witch, she reveals that a curse she placed on the couple stands between them and the family they yearn for. The couple set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse. Along the way, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, who is pursued by the ravenous Wolf, Jack (of beanstalk fame) on his own quest for adventure, Cinderella on her way to the King’s festival, and two handsome Princes chasing after their loves. Though many characters do indeed see their wishes come true, they quickly see how the consequences of their actions turn out to haunt them in disastrous ways. When a giant wreaks havoc on the village, everyone must band together to save each other and their kingdom – but sacrifices must be made.
Featuring an all-star cast, choir, and live orchestra, this concert-style production takes audiences on a journey they won’t soon forget.
