Presented by our Fine Arts Program, this year our Participants will be performing Into the Woods Junior on September 20 and 21 at the Gorton Community Center in Lake Forest. Click here to see more info about the musical and how you can get tickets.
The story weaves the plots of beloved fairy tale characters to make a creative, exciting musical!
“Into the Woods is a fun musical that intertwines the story of Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and other fairy tale characters as they work together to undo a curse that the evil witch has placed on a baker and his wife,” said co-director Janine Neumann.
This year’s production has fewer character roles than some of the past musicals, which makes each of the roles essential to the story.
“We chose this musical because rather than having one or two ‘lead’ roles, every
single character is a lead in their own specific story that combines to make the musical a whole. Without each character, the story of Into the Woods would not be complete,” stated Janine.
Beginning in March, the cast has been hard at work learning their lines and songs and are eager to show off their talent!
According to Participants Josh J. and Sue W., it has been fun to learn their lines and they have already been able to memorize parts of the musical.
Mark your calendars, and stay tuned for more updates on our social media as it approaches. Tickets will be available online, by phone and at the door.
The Participants want everyone to know that they are very hard at work and would love to have people come see the musical to support them. According to them, “it is cute and will make you feel good!”
