WFU theatre presents The Musical Into the Woods
By Pam Barrett
The Wake Forest University Theatre will present their largest production of the year with Stephen Sondheims and James Lapines musical Into the Woods April 2 at 7:30 p.m. at Wake Forest Universitys MainStage Theatre in Scales Fine Arts Center.
Evening performances will be held April 2-3 and April 7-10 at 7:30 p.m. A matinee performance will be offered April 4 at 2 p.m.
This Tony Award-winning play is a light-hearted musical about a childless couple that must venture into magical woods to find mystical items in order to have children. A combination of beautiful songs and inventive lyrics, the play is a fun, insightful look into what can happen after happily ever after. The Washington Post calls it a delicious spin on Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and other fairy tales.
Directed by Wake Forests Assistant Professor of Theatre Cindy Gendrich, the production will include a cast of 22 Wake Forest students, a production team of 13 students and faculty, and musicians from the Wake Forest Orchestra.
Tickets cost $12 for the general public and $5 for students and can be purchased by visiting or calling the Wake Forest Theatre Box Office at 336-758-5295, Monday-Friday between 12 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Tickets are also available at the door one hour before performances.
