Into the Woods

Discover your happily ever after.

In Sondheim & Lapine’s delightfully fractured fairy tale musical, a Baker and his Wife embark into the woods on a quest to reverse a curse laid on them by the Witch next door.  Along the way they encounter an ambivalent Cinderella, an aggressive Red Riding Hood, a rebellious Rapunzel, a too-trusting Jack, and a couple of not-so-princely Princes. But when everyone’s wishes are granted, the consequences of their self-centered actions come to haunt them.   Eventually they learn a moving life lesson about working together, the stories we tell our children, and the real meaning of “happily ever after.”

Posted by on Jul 9, 2017 in Announcements, Events | No Comments

We are excited to announce the auditions for our fall play, Inherit the Wind!

Inherit the Wind

This play by Jerome Lawrence and Robert Edwin Lee takes on a subject that is still controversial today. Inherit the Wind discusses the debate covered in the Scopes “Monkey” Trial, which argued creation versus evolution. Inherit the Wind’s many revivals and film adaptions show that this argument is still relevant today. Although we know the answer to this argument remains open to interpretation based on an individuals views and beliefs, what conclusion will they come to in this story?

Audition Dates:
Monday, August 21st, 2017– 6pm-9pm
Tuesday, August 22nd, 2017– 6pm-9pm

The Levoy Theatre
