Bellevue College students to perform musical “Into the Woods”
Seven night run opens May 29, 2014
What happens after Happily Ever After, after all?
Bellevue College theatre students will answer just that in Sondheim and Lapine’s beloved musical retelling of the Grimm classics. The show combines a number of classic fairy tales into one hilarious, touching, over-arching narrative.
A baker and his wife are assigned a number of tasks by a nearby witch; only after completing these duties will they be able to bear children. During their quest to fulfill the witches’ demands, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and his beanstalk, Rapunzel, Cinderella and numerous other fairy tale figures. As the traditional stories intertwine new tales are told, yet the original fairy tales’ sense of wonder and, at times, darkness remains intact. The score, winner of Broadway’s Tony Award, includes such songs as “Children Will Listen,” “Giants in the Sky” and “No One Is Alone.”
