Teen Theater Musical: Into the Woods
November 8, 2019 @ 7:00pm
An event every week that begins at 7:00pm on Friday, repeating until November 15, 2019
Join Verge’s legendary Teen Theater family for this fall’s musical extravaganza. Marvel at the heart, effort and talent of our combined middle and high school Teen Theater class. Don’t miss it!
This year, Teen Theater will present Into the Woods, an epic fairytale musical about wishes, family and the choices we make.
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite Brothers Grimm 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.
