INTO THE WOODS Jr performed by students from The Spark, at Brixham Theatre
INTO THE WOODS Jr comes to Brixham Theatre - Understudies performance 30 July, Main performances Aug 2nd & 3rd
So we may not have James Corden, Emily Blunt or Meryl Streep but we have an amazingly talented cast of young actors excited to bring this high quality show to Brixham Theatre.
Be careful what you wish for, as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale comes to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical. Into the Woods JR. features all of your favourite characters — Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch — in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.
The musical centres on 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, and wind up changed forever.
Suitable for all ages - this abridged version of the show runs at only 1 hr 20 including an interval.
Tickets are on sale from Brixham theatre box office, open mon-sat 10-12, on 01803 415987 or online via tickets.brixhamtheatre
