The North High School Junior Players will present the musical Into the Woods on Thursday, Nov. 18 and Friday, Nov. 19 at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Nov. 20 at 2 p.m. All three performances will take place in the North High auditorium, 35 Polo Rd.
This award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine features several popular fairy tale characters as they cross paths in the woods, including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack (and the Beanstalk), and Little Red Riding Hood. They strive to assist the Baker and his Wife who desperately want a child, but are childless due to a witch’s curse. To break the spell, all the characters must perform arduous tasks. In the process, they face their fears and learn about the need for community and family.
This Junior Players production is directed by Andrew Wagner, theatre director/drama teacher, with music direction by Dr. Pamela Levy, orchestra direction by Joseph Rutkowski, and set design by Len Antinori.
