Into The Woods JR.

Book by James Lapine
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Based on classic fairy tales

"[The kids] found the laughs in the lyrics, handled the demands of the score beautifully and had a blast. The very best part: more than 50 kids have signed up to audition for the spring production !"

-F. R. Pappas,
St. Stephens School


Sondheim and Lapine present a cock-eyed view of everyone's favorite fairytale characters in this hysterical take on the Brothers Grimm.
 

The Brothers Grimm "go Broadway" as Sondheim and Lapine offer up a cockeyed fairy tale in Into The Woods JR., an adaptation of one of Sondheim’s most popular works designed especially for young performers.

All of your favorite characters—Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), and the Witch—meet and interact in this whimsical original story. The musical centers on 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 to break the curse and wind up changed forever.

With unforgettable roles, little dancing, and no chorus, Into The Woods JR. showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors. The sophisticated score has been adapted to make it easier – though still challenging –for young performers. Into The Woods JR. is a funny and engaging way to get young people to think about the stories with which they've grown up and the ethical issues raised therein.
