This musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows them to explore the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. Featuring main characters from Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel and Cinderella – the musical is tied together by an original story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey. Into the Woods will be presented in Trinity and St. John’s. It will be adapted to a Newfoundland setting. A number of the actors who worked with Keith in last season’s The Naming of Port Rexton will return.
