An adventure intertwining characters from Cinderella, Jack in the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood and Rapunzel are featured in an upcoming production at Riverside Jr/Sr High School.
The students will present “Into the Woods,” which is said to be a musical with a modern twist on Brothers Grimm fairy tales. The family-friendly event will be staged March 16-18 at 6:30 p.m. in the R. L. Bateman Auditorium at Riverside High School, 210 N.E. Boardman Ave., Boardman. The cost is $5 per person. Tickets will be sold at the door or can be purchased in advance from cast members.
A Broadway production, which Disney picked up for a film adaptation several years ago, the story follows the Baker’s wife, who has a desire for a child. They set off on a scavenger hunt to satisfy instructions set by the Witch to create a spell to make that happen.
Wishes come true by the end of Act I — however, things start to fall apart in the second act.
From the opening words of “Once upon a time” to the final curtain, the audience will be entertained with song and mystery. With the twists and turns, remember to “be careful what you wish for.”
The cast features both high school and junior high students. The production is directed by Collin Dunlap, Riverside’s music director.
