CPD Youth Theatre presents Into the Woods @ The Virginia Theatre – 02/29-03/02

Feb 29, 2024 (8:00 AM) - Mar 02, 2024 (5:00 PM)
The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family, and the choices we make.
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant stage musical… and a modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods follows a baker and his wife, who want 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. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
