[Into the Woods] INTO THE WOODS
Auditions: Tues, May 31 @ 7PM; Sat, June 4 @ 11AM
Performance dates: July 30 - August 14 (Fridays & Saturdays @ 8PM; Sundays @ 2PM)

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

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 cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. One of Sondheim's most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show.

Seeking Adults and older teenagers (13+). Prepare a song from the show and be ready to read from the script. Must be vaccinated.

Auditions: Sat, July 9 @ 11AM and Fri, July 22 @ 7PM

Inherit the Wind is a fictional version of the 1925 Scopes Trial. Scopes was convicted for teaching evolution to a high school class. In Tennessee, state law prohibited teaching evolution. The play is meant to criticize the anti-Communist investigations that took place in the U.S. The authors used the Scope's trial as a platform to explore threats to learning and intellectual freedom.
