Be careful what you wish for, as fairytales come to life in this adaptation of the groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical by James Lapine and the late, great Stephen Sondheim. Into the Woods JR. features favorite characters — Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), the Witch and many more — in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.

Our showcase program gives student actors the opportunity to receive top-level training as they work in an ensemble with their peers towards a final performance. The rehearsal process allows students to work with professional directors, actors, and choreographers. This is an intensive program, and one that provides actors with pride of ownership as they develop skills as performers and develop confidence in their off-stage lives.

All students registered for this program will be cast in the show. The cast includes roles for new and experienced actors, singers and non-singers alike. Solos, as well as ensemble singing opportunities, are available. More information and instructions will be emailed to registrants before the start of the program.

Students are expected to attend all rehearsals and all performances for their assigned cast.
