ENCINITAS – Ovation Theatre presents the classic musical "Into the Woods" by Steven Sondheim. This Tony Award-winning musical follows the journey of a group of fairy tale characters as they venture into the woods in search of their desires. Along the way, they encounter Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack of beanstalk fame. But be warned: it is no ordinary retelling of these classic stories. Sondheim's clever lyrics and memorable score add depth and complexity to these beloved characters, leading them on a journey of self-discovery and the surprising consequences of their actions.
"Into the Woods" has been a fan favorite since its Broadway debut in 1987, and this production promises to be no different. With a talented cast of actors from throughout San Diego County, stunning sets and costumes, and the award-winning creative team of Pamela Laurent as artistic director, Scott Gregory as music director and Susie Dycus as choreographer – it's a show you won't want to miss.
"The hilarity as well as eventual pathos provided by these well-known fairy tale characters – with real people's wants and desires – being thrown together in the middle of the woods is compelling for anyone who is in the show as well as anyone who attends as an audience member," Laurent said. "'Be careful what you wish for.'"
"Into the Woods" will be playing at the Howard Brubeck Theatre at Palomar College Jan 20-22 and Jan 27-29. Get tickets at http://ovationtheatre.org and join the magical journey.
