Blending timeless fairytales and Disney classics, Into the Woods tells the story of The Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who yearns to go to the King’s festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would produce milk. When the Baker and his wife journey into the woods to reverse a curse placed on them by an evil witch, they come across Little Red; the Wolf; the witch’s daughter, Rapunzel; and a princess, who all have wishes of their own. Just when it seems everyone’s wishes have been granted, Jack’s beanstalk brings them a visit from an angry giant. Our favorite characters must come together to save each other and their kingdom.
Five performances of Into the Woods will be held on November 11 at 7:30 p.m., November 12 at 2 p.m., November 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m., and November 19 at 2 p.m. The show is produced by Lucille Franco Conzo’79 and directed by Jodi Capeless.

The cast and crew are made of up our talented IHA girls and students from area boys’ schools.
