Bronxville High School will present the fantasy fairy tale production of “Into the Woods” as its musical from Feb. 6-8. Having worked on the production for months, the dedicated group of performers will bring all the favorite storybook characters together to tell the story of wishes, family and the choices we make.
Directed by choral director Pamela Simpson, the musical features 82 actors, 22 students in the orchestra pit and 21 crew members, who have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to create and build the sets, props and costumes for the show. The talented students are also supported by Denise Lutter in the orchestra pit, Caroline Oliver as costume designer and Mary Ann Ivan on vocals.
“The plot is fast paced and very clever, with the different characters crossing paths in the most unpredictable and magical ways, but with unexpected, surprising and even ill-fated results,” Simpson said.
During the first act, the audience is introduced to a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who would like to attend the King’s Festival; as well as Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse.
As a special treat to its youngest audience members after a child-friendly Saturday matinee performance, Bronxville High School will invite children to come dressed in their favorite fairy tale costumes, meet with the cast members and take a photograph together for a small donation. Proceeds from the matinee will be donated to Destination College.
Performances are Thursday, Feb. 6 at 5 p.m.; Friday, Feb. 7 at 7 p.m.; and Saturday, Feb. 8 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. at the Bronxville School auditorium. Tickets to the performances are $15 if purchased ahead of time or $20 at the door. Tickets to the matinee show are $10.
