Theatre Department Presents “Into the Woods”

The Truman Theatre Department will present the musical “Into the Woods” April 13-16. Showtime for all nights will be 8 p.m. and performances will take place in the James G. Severns Theatre in Ophelia Parrish.

In this production, many traditional fairy tales come to life simultaneously. While Cinderella goes to the ball, Jack robs the giant and Red Riding Hood heads to her grandmother’s house. At the same time, a baker and his pregnant wife are cursed by a witch who threatens to take their first-born child. In order to break the curse, the baker must go on a journey to obtain the cow as white as milk, the cape as red as blood, the hair as yellow as corn and the slipper as pure as gold for the witch. As all the storylines start to intertwine, things begin to go horribly wrong for the fairy tale characters.

Tickets can be obtained either in advance or first-come first-served at the door. Tickets are free and can be reserved by calling the Box Office at 785.4515 or by dropping by the window outside the James G. Severns Theatre between 10 a.m.-4 p.m. This production will run about two hours and 20 minutes and is appropriate for anyone 12 years of age or older.
