About 'Into the Woods':
Into the Woods is an original tale starring many classic fairytale characters audiences know and love, such as witches, princes and the Big Bad Wolf.
When a baker and his wife learn they cannot bear a child because of a witch's curse, they set off on a journey through the woods to break it. Along the way they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack, from Jack and the Beanstalk. After everyone's wish is granted, these characters learn that life after "happily ever after" isn't quite what they expected.
A special addition to the cast is UND First Lady Marcia Kelley, who will play the role of the "Giant's Wife."
Into the Woods is the winner of a Tony Award for Best Score.
