The musical—based on a book by James Lapine—intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests.

The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” “Rapunzel,” and “Cinderella,” as well as several others.

The musical is tied together by an original story involving a childless baker and his wife, their quest to begin a family, their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.

“Into the Woods” is directed by Robin Stephens, associate professor of dance, with music direction by Dr. Jason Rinehart, associate professor and director of athletic bands.

KEDM Public Radio will host a Director’s Gala from 5-7 p.m., on Saturday, April 5, in the Sculpture Garden between Biedenharn Hall and The Brown Theater Complex, preceding the evening’s 7:30 p.m. performance.

The Gala is a catered event, which provides the opportunity for patrons to mingle with the production crew and cast of “Into the Woods.” Tickets for the gala are $25. Show tickets must be purchased separately.
