Into the Woods
Now a movie starring Meryl Streep, Into the Woods began as a live musical that took Broadway by storm. This youth production of Stephen Sondheim's Tony-winning musical at the Redmond Academy of Theatre Arts skillfully interweaves several classic fairy tales into one epic story that shows what happens when the fairy-tale world gets real. This fresh twist on the Brothers Grimm features young actors and brings together an ambivalent Cinderella, a temperamental Little Red Riding Hood, a rebellious Rapunzel, a naïve Jack (of beanstalk fame), a Baker, his Wife and, of course, the Witch. But this time around, the beloved storybook characters take on startling complexity as they discover that wishes come with a price.
