The Carthage Theatre Department presents the spellbinding musical “Into the Woods” April 27-May 5 in Wartburg Theatre.
“Into the Woods,” a musical written by seven-time Tony Award-winning composer Stephen Sondheim, reinvents beloved fairy tales to tell a new and captivating story. The show follows a handful of characters: The Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wants to go to the ball; Jack, who wishes he could keep his beloved pet cow, Milky White; and Little Red Riding Hood, who wants to deliver bread and sweets to her ailing grandmother. The Baker and his wife are visited by the Witch who lives next door. She reveals to them that she has placed a curse on their family, which they must reverse to have their child. Set upon their respective tasks, the characters head into the woods to achieve their goals and find their happily ever afters. Winning Tonys for Best Original Score and Best Book of a Musical, along with the Drama Desk award for Outstanding Musical, “Into the Woods” is a spellbinding story full of heart and determination that is sure to enchant audiences from overture to final curtain.
