“Into the Woods” is being produced by Playhouse 395 which has delighted audiences with many amazing shows such as Chicago, Mary Poppins, South Pacific, Oklahoma and most recently the small theater production of SUDS.

Anything can happen in the woods. This is the promise, and the premise, of the much-loved Tony Award-winning musical “Into the Woods”.

Legendary composer Stephen Sondheim and author James Lapine have taken everyone’s favorite storybook characters and brought them together for a timeless and rare modern classic. The story intertwines the plots of several well-known fairytales, bringing Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and beanstalk-climbing Jack into the woods where they will end up meeting a witch, Rapunzel, the Big Bad Wolf and a couple of charming princes.
