Ballyhoo Theatre presents Into the Woods July 25-27, 2014.
What happens after "happily ever after?" A childless Baker and his wife find out about the consequences and complications that come from getting your wish in this magical twist on several classic stories. A cast of well known fairy tale characters, such as Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Ridinghood, all pursue the same goal: to get their wish. Along the way, they encounter handsome princes, a vengeful witch, and a terrifying giant, and ultimately must ask themselves if they are certain that what they wished for is what they really want.
Into the Woods, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine is produced by Shileah Corey and features a cast of 22 actors ages 11-16. Performances are July 25 and 26 at 7:00 pm, with matinee performances July 26 and 27 at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $5.00 and can be purchased at the door. All performances are at the Edmonds Heights K-12 Theatre, 23200 100th Ave W, Edmonds Washington.
