The Department of Theatre at Emory & Henry College along with the E&H Arts Series presents four performances of Stephen Sondheim’s beloved musical “Into the Woods.” Opening on Thursday evening November 21 and continuing on Friday and Saturday, November 22 and 23, the performances are at 7:30 p.m. in the College’s Studio Theatre. The Sunday afternoon, November 24 performance begins at 3 p.m. in Studio Theatre.
The production casts E&H students as actors, singers and dancers, as well as students for crews to construct scenery, to manage the stage, to run the light board, to do hair and make-up, sew costumes and manage wardrobe. The play is directed by Emory & Henry College professor of theatre Kelly J.G. Bremner; music direction is by Christine Young Gerber, in her first year as professor of theatre and music; and production design and supervision of crews is by Daniel L. Wheeler, professor of theatre and chair of the theatre department at the college.
This much loved Stephen Sondheim musical follows the baker and his wife as they try to reverse a curse placed on them by the neighboring witch that has left them childless. Along the way they meet Little Red Riding Hood, jack (and his beanstalk), and Cinderella and Rapunzel. This decidedly adult and complex re-examination of our classic fairy tales will leave the audience questioning the nature of happily-ever-after.
Seating is limited, therefore advanced reservations are strongly suggested. Tickets are currently available at the 1912 Gallery—located in the train depot—for students, faculty and staff and for whom the play is free of charge, but tickets are expected.
