The Story

What is the price we must pay to fulfill our deepest wishes?

In a quest to reverse a curse placed on them by the Witch next door, and fulfill their deepest wish, the Baker and his Wife journey into the woods to find four magical ingredients. On their journey, they encounter Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood, Rapunzel, and Jack, each on a quest to fulfill a wish of their own. Through peculiar paths and twisting trails, characters soon discover that not every thing is as it seems, and that every story has more than one ending.

From the Stage Door

Into the Woods features some of Sondheim’s wittiest lyrics as well as achingly beautiful melodies; the score has aged gracefully, imbuing the storybook narrative with clever wordplay and compelling themes.” - The Hollywood Reporter
“I can’t think of a better way for the High School Project to triumphantly return to the stage than with the legendary Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods. Introducing a new generation of theatre lovers to the beauty and magic of this Tony Award-winning musical is a true joy, and I have no doubt that our students will enchant you as we travel together into the woods.” - Dennis Garnhum, Grand Theatre Artistic Director
