We have classes for children and adults of all ages and abilities, and would love to see you join us this term to learn a new skill, or fine tune your existing talents! Classes will be working, this term and next, towards a performance on the main stage! 


Click here now to get your tickets for our big musical of the year!

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife who wish 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.

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.

INTO THE WOODS is presented through special arrangement with MTI.  All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com

*We recommend this show as a PG due to mild violence and moderate adult themes*
