We are thrilled to announce that our next show will be Into the woods, to be staged at the Embassy Theatre, Skegness, on 1 and 2 March 2019.
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and 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.
We would love to see some new members join our society for this fabulous show, so please come along to the Grosvenor House Hotel in Skegness on Wednesday 12 September, at 7.00 pm, for our first rehearsal. We can give you all the information about rehearsal schedules, audition dates, and membership costs.
