Auditions also will be held 3pm February 11 at the theater for the musical “Into the Woods,” scheduled to be staged at the theater June 8-10 and June 15 – 16.  See below for character breakdown and audition requirements for each role.

The Tony Award-winning “Into the Woods” 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.
