“Into The Woods,” the Tony award winning musical, opens Friday, April 27, at the Farmington Players Barn, with a special event dedicated to helping the “Make-A-Wish Foundation.”
This classic mash-up of beloved childhood stories tells a “coming of age” tale about characters coping when their lives fall short of expectations. It twists and combines various Grimm Brothers and Charles Perrault stories into a fantastic fable exploring the reality that unfolds once the fairy tale ends.
The musical focuses on a childless Baker and his wife who go on a journey into the woods to reverse a curse placed on their house by a witch—a spell that prevents them from having a child. Along the way they encounter a group of psychologically damaged characters including: Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and the Giant-killer Jack, all living out their familiar stories.
Since “Into The Woods” is all about wishes and dreams, the Farmington Players are on a mission to help make dreams come true for sick children. On opening night, the Barn will donate proceeds from the 50-50 ticket sales, to The Make-A- Wish Foundation.
Reserved seats are available farmingtonplayers.org or at the box office, 248-553-2955.
