Sierra College Theatre Arts Department announces its spring production of Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award winning musical… Into the Woods with book by James Lapine, directed by Scott Adams with musical direction by Ray Ashton. Into the Woods is an exploration about wishes, child-parent relationships and the choices we make as told through several familiar fairy tale characters by the inimitable Brothers Grimm.

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 to save his cow. When the Baker and the Baker’s 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 proven by the box office hit of its recent movie adaptation, Into the Woods dazzles audiences with memorable songs such as “Steps of the Palace,” “Giants in the Sky,” and haunting melodies that tug at heartstrings such as “No More,” “Children Will Listen,” and “No One is Alone.”
