The Brothers Grimm “go Broadway” as Sondheim and Lapine offer up a cockeyed fairy tale in INTO THE WOODS JR., an adaptation of one of Sondheim’s most popular works designed especially for young performers and audiences.

All of your favorite characters—Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), and the Witch—meet and interact in this whimsical original story. The musical centers on a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the king’s festival; and 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 and wind up changed forever.
