Into The Woods at Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts - December 2014

The Wallis presents The Oregon Shakespeare Festival production of Into The Woods.  Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), a Baker and his Wife must cross paths in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony Award-winning Into the Woods, a modern twist on the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tales. 

The storybook characters take on startling complexity as they discover wishes come with a price. Witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers force the heroes to face the music and look past “Happily Ever After.” 

Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s critically-acclaimed new production is a humorous and heartfelt chase through the woods, featuring a 17-member cast and an 18-member orchestra performing songs No One Is AloneChildren Will Listen and Giants in the Sky.

Into the Woods is recommended for mature elementary school students and up who are ready for a darker view of the nature of our fables and legends.


Running Time: 2 hours and 55 minutes, including one intermission. 

Tickets can be purchased at thewallis.org.
