Country Day School to Perform 'Into the Woods'


St. Croix Country Day School presents four performances of the award-winning Stephen Sondheim musical "Into the Woods." The production will be held at 7 p.m., on Fridays and Saturdays, April 4,5,11 and 12, at the Country Day School Pavilion. It is directed by Annaly Babb-Guerra with musical direction by Cherith Wagner.
An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A witch…who raps? They're all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's fractured fairy tale. When a baker and his wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. What begins a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of "The Princess Bride" becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.*
This production is suitable for families and doors open at 6:30 p.m.. Tickets are available at the door, $5 for students, $10 for adults. For more information, call 778-1974.
