Easter May Week
Sondheim's "Into the woods" is a unique show, combining magical staging and costume with some of the classiest of Sondheim's music, and an off-the-wall, tongue-in-cheek undercurrent that mixes the Brothers Grimm with Shrek, and maybe just a bit of Glee to boot. There is no chorus part, however there are nearly 20 leads, varying from the major (Cinderella, the Witch, Jack, the Baker...) to some minor (yet always well written) character roles - Cinderella's drunk father, her two Hot Sisters, to name but a few. The performance will be held on Sunday 13th June in the evening with a possibility of an open dress in the afternoon to make sure as many people as possible gets a chance to see this great show.
