Into the Woods

April 27 & 28

Once upon a time in a far off kingdom, there lay a small village at the edge of the woods… and so begins this beloved Stephen Sondheim musical, coming to the Vestavia High School stage.

A modern twist on Brothers Grimm fairy tales, this musical format follows Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel, tied together with an original story of a baker, his wife and a witch who has put a curse on them. Save the date to come out to see it on stage Friday, April 27 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, April 28 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
