Broadway Junior Version
The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make. (60 MINUTE VERSION FOR YOUNG PERFORMERS)
The Brothers Grimm "go Broadway" as Sondheim and Lapine offer up a
cockeyed fairy tale in INTO THE WOOD JR.,
an adaptation of one of Sondheim’s most popular works designed
especially for young performers.
All of your favorite
characters—Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his
beanstalk), and the Witch—meet and interact in this whimsical original
story. The musical centers 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
With unforgettable roles, little dancing,
and no chorus, INTO THE WOODS JR. showcases
a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors. The
sophisticated score has been adapted to make it easier – though still
challenging –for young performers. INTO THE WOODS
JR. is a funny and engaging way to get young people to
think about the stories with which they've grown up and the ethical
issues raised therein.
