Auditions! Into the Woods (full version)! Ages 14+
We are beyond thrilled to announce our teen production of Into the Woods (full version)!
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.
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 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. 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, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy.
Auditions - Saturday, March 9th from 1-3pm. Actors will be given a 10 minute time slot. Please prepare 16 bars from the provided audition materials for the character you are auditioning for. There is no dance audition for this show.
