What does it cost to get your wish?
This is what Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood, Jack, and the Baker will soon find out as they
venture onto a dangerous and unknown path to better their fortune. One of Sondheim’s most
beloved works, Into the Woods intertwines classic Grimm’s Brothers fairytales in a dark,
humorous reimagining of the stories we all know and love, reckoning with the consequences of
their reckless pursuits. With giants in our midst, the show asks us which is the bigger threat to
our happiness: the giants, or ourselves?.


Preparation:  Come prepared with a 32-bar cut of a musical theater song, and be prepared to sing with accompaniment. Send your sheet music to Owen Posnett (otp2) and Mayu Sasada (ms4957) or sing with a track; no a cappella please. Sides from the show will be provided in room. Any questions should be directed towards the director Orly Salik (ors12) or producer Drew Lent (acl140).
