Aug 11-13, 2022
(includes a matinee performance at 2 p.m. on Saturday)
Book by James Lapine, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Directed by: Natalie Newberry
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.
The story follows 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. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
One of Sondheim's most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.

Into the Woods Cancelled
Dear Tlt Patrons,
Due to the rising number of cases of Covid-19 and a recent exposure to our cast we, unfortunately, have decided to cancel our upcoming performances of The Game’s Afoot for November 19, 20, & 21, 2020. It is true that we are concerned with attendance numbers but most importantly we are concerned about the health of our cast, crew, and patrons.
At this time we do not have a postponement planned, but with some hope and luck we may be able to bring this show back at another date or in another season. Our current plan is to push forward for our next production of Evita in February. We will be constantly monitoring the situation in our community in order to make informed decisions about each of the remaining shows this season.
We want to say thank you to our cast and crew for their hard work and preparation for the show. We are sad that we cannot present it to you but we know this is the best decision for our community. We love Jefferson City and we want to make sure we are doing what we can to stop the spread of this illness. Thank you to everyone for your continued support of The Little Theatre and the arts in Jefferson City.
