Into the Woods, the Tony-award winning musical, will be presented by South High School on Friday, Nov. 20, and Saturday, Nov. 21, in the school’s auditorium, 341 Lakeville Rd. Both performances begin at 7:30 p.m.
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take favorite storybook characters, including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack (and the Beanstalk) and Little Red Riding Hood, and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece. The story follows 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. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them with disastrous results. Into the Woods is appropriate for all ages.
At the Friday evening performance, there will be a preshow and intermission reception to benefit the Fran Harman Memorial Scholarship. Visit www.greatnecksouthtickets.com for more information and to purchase admission to the reception.
