Presented July 7th & 8th 2017
Step It Up Summer Stage proudly opened its seventh season with Stephen Sondheim’s classic musical Into the Woods Friday and Saturday, July 7th & 8th at 7pm at the Walter Reade, Jr. Theatre at Storm King School, Cornwall on Hudson.
Into the Woods weaves and twists the Brothers Grimm fairy tales of Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood and Rapunzel with Sondheim’s own invented tale about a childless Baker and his Wife. The story tells a cautionary tale about wishes, family and the choices we make. The show is comedic, but dark, and reminds us all to be very careful; careful what we wish for, careful what we do to make those wishes come true, and most importantly, careful the lessons we teach our children.
Into the Woods featured a cast of 30 local middle school through college students. Directed by Karen Eremin and T.J. Larke, with musical direction by Billy Blair, and featured a five piece orchestra.
