MANHATTAN - Kansas State University’s School of Music, Theatre, and Dance will present the musical Into the Woods in the Mark A. Chapman Theatre in Nichols Hall, Nov. 2-12.
Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s family-friendly musical follows the story of a Baker and his Wife, who are trying to reverse an evil spell by the Witch. On their journey into the woods, they meet Cinderella, Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and other well-known characters, who are looking to have their own wishes granted.
In its initial run, many thought the piece to be Sondheim’s response to the AIDS epidemic with its first act focused on the fairy-tale characters achieving “happily ever after” and the second act when they must face death and destruction by an indiscriminate Giant on a rampage throughout the kingdom.
“With a season focused on identity, community and responsibility, KSU theatre sought titles that spoke to our current political climate,” Jerry Jay Cranford, Assistant Professor in KSU’s Theatre Department, said. “As the director, I wanted to bring a fun, modern, adult-like take to the fairy-tale world with a non-realistic forest inspired by images from the old Studio 54.”
