Production Information

Into the Woods, JR.

Book by James Lapine

Music & Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim

Be careful what you wish for as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale comes to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical.  Into the Woods JR. features all of your favorite characters – Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.

The musical centers on 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 and wind up changed forever.

Junior Theater Festival - January 12, 13 & 14, 2018

The Junior Theater Festival began in 2003 as a way to celebrate and encourage students and teachers who are presenting musicals in their schools and communities. Each year, participating groups seem to bring even more creativity, enthusiasm and joy to this event, and in turn, iTheatrics responds by creating more opportunities and experiences. As of 2010, the Junior Theater Festival has become an annual event.

The festival brings together people from all aspects of theatre, ranging from students and teachers to Broadway professionals, under one roof to celebrate outstanding student musical theatre productions.

The festival offers an enthusiastic environment for students and teachers to interact with thousands of others who share their passion for musical theatre. Each group attending performs a selection from a Broadway Junior or KIDS Collection musical for professional adjudication by a distinguished panel of international theatre professionals. Groups participate in interactive workshops lead by Broadway and West End professionals.

Performances - May 3, 4 & 5, 2018

The entire show will be performed at CCM May 3 (7:00), May 4 (7:00), and May 5 (3:00) in CCM’s Cohen Family Studio Theater. Other opportunities for the students to perform selections from the show will be explored throughout the year.
