North Shore Light Opera ventures INTO THE WOODS for its 70th Anniversary production

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods’ musical sophistication and lyrical richness are sure to delight audiences!

Please be advised that this musical deals with mature subject matter.

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 will remain childless because they have been cursed by the Witch next door, the two set out on a quest to find four objects to break the curse set upon them. On their search for a cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as corn, and a slipper as pure as gold, they encounter Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack, and many other fairy tale favorites, each of whom has wishes of their own. Through a series of actions, as everyone’s wishes come true, the consequences of their choices begin to haunt them with disastrous results.
