Into the Woods JR

Saturday 9th-Sunday 10th July 2022

Nelson Youth Theatre Company presents fantastic fairy tale entertainment for the whole family!

“Be careful what you wish for” is the ongoing theme in this Broadway family favourite musical fairytale world. Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods follows a baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go to the King’s festival, and Jack (and the beanstalk) who wishes his cow would give some milk.

When the baker and his wife are visited by a wicked witch from next door, she reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, and the two set off on a journey “into the woods'' to reverse the curse. There we meet Little Red Riding Hood, on her way to visit her grandmother, a wolf who loves tasty little girls, the witch’s daughter Rapunzel, and Cinderella’s and Rapunzel’s princes! By the end, everyone will seem to have gotten their wish and will be preparing to live happily ever after. But will they…?
