Into the Woods
Summer Theatre kicks off with "Into the Woods"

What would happen if everyone suddenly had their wildest dreams fulfilled? That is the premise of “Into the Woods,” one of Broadways most successful musicals. Stephen Sondheim (music) and James Lapine (book) first staged the show 30 years ago, and it has been produced on and off Broadway frequently ever since.

Director Chris Jones and a group of young professionals are bringing the classic story to the stage for the opening of The Prizery’s 2017 Summer Theatre Celebration. Jones acknowledges that this is one of the largest challenges the summer theatre program has faced and praises the team he has assembled for their talents and work ethic.
