A fresh spin on several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Into the Woods interweaves and reimagines the stories of a number of beloved characters to examine whether "happily ever after" is really even possible. Unable to bear children, a baker and his wife are lured into completing a number of tasks by a witch who promises to grant them their wish. During their journey, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Jack and the Beanstalk. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, the original Broadway run won critical praise and numerous awards. The cast recording, which includes "Children Will Listen," "Giants in The Sky" and "No One Is Alone" took home a Grammy. It's set to get the Hollywood movie treatment this year in a film starring Johnny Depp and Meryl Streep. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
“This is better than John Philip Sousa played on massed kazoos with free ice cream sodas.” —New York Post
Oil City Symphony comes to Fullerton’s Plummer Auditorium. The show stars its authors and original New York cast members Mike Craver and Mary Murfitt (626 performances Off-Broadway). The story concerns four famous graduates of Oil City High School, who return to pay a very humorous homage to a retiring teacher. Each must play several instruments on stage as well as sing and act. The music ranges from “The Hokey Pokey” to the “Anvil Chorus” and also includes “Stars and Stripes Forever”, “1812 Overture”, and “Count Your Blessings” , plus other sentimental favorites and rock standards. The show is known for its humor and multi-talented performers.
