And The Beanstalk, Cinderella And Red Riding Hood
Cross Paths, A Fairy Tale Ending Is Guaranteed
Churchill High School Performances slated For November 18th, 19th
even the Brothers Grimm could have cooked this up. Take a half-dozen of your
favorite fairy tales, stir them together, and mix in a heaping helping of
Stephen Sondheim’s music and a pinch of pixie dust. Now add Livonia Churchill
High School’s talented CAPA (Creative And Performing Arts) performers and you
have the recipe for a tasty musical production entitled Into the Woods.
It opens Thursday, November 18th at 7:30pm in
the Carli Auditorium at Churchill High School, 8900 Newburgh Road, Livonia.
There will also be 7:30pm performances on Friday, November 19th and
Saturday, November 20th. Tickets are $12 for adults, and $10 for
students and seniors.
The Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine musical takes some of the
central characters from the world’s most famous fairy tales and weaves them
into a new story filled with evil curses, magic potions, damsels in distress and
even a handsome prince or two. The Broadway revival of Into the Woods won
the 2002 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.
The cast features Jon Wright as the Baker, Catherine Rayes
as the Baker’s wife, Laurie Kuhlman as the Witch, Lauren Epler as Cinderella,
Heather Dolan as Little Red Riding Hood, Colin Gibbings as Jack, and Kriss Wellman as the narrator. Gail
Susan Mack directs Into the Woods. Mack, who heads up the CAPA program,
has directed over 350 shows during her career.
Rolfe Bergsman, whose credits include Art Director for
rapper Eminem’s movie Eight Mile, is the set designer.
