The Montverde Academy Theatre Department proudly presents the first beloved musical, “Into the Woods,” based on John Lapine’s book, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. The musical first appeared on Broadway in 1987 and more recently in a Disney film starring Meryl Streep in 2014. The show will run from February 20-24, 2019.
“Into the Woods” is a fun and fanciful tale with a lesson of “Be careful what you wish for,” as an underlying theme in this Brothers Grimm inspired musical. With a cast of award-winning student performers, the stories of favorite fairytale characters, such as the baker and his wife, Cinderella, Jack and more, are intertwined. The Baker and his wife set off on a journey into the woods to reverse a curse where they meet Little Red Riding Hood and her nemesis the Wolf, Rapunzel and the Princes who are busy chasing after their loves. Just when things seem to be going happily ever after, an angry Giant appears on the scene.
The MVA Theatre Department is proud to be consistently recognized for the stage productions of musicals and plays it presents. Talented students will bring the beloved characters to life on a spectacular set with impressive costumes to captivate audiences with this enchanting musical. The production is directed by Roberta Emerson, choreographed by Rebecca Montgomery and music direction led by Dean Bell.
