“But Mother warned me never to stray from the path!”
Into the Woods JR. features all of your favourite 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 centres 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.
“Every aspect a joy… an expertly crafted company.”
“… witty and moving musical theatre.”
Into the Woods JR. is presented by an ensemble of talented young singers and actors from the PULSE programme at the New Zealand School of Music.
