Into The Woods cast

Making up the cast are Julian Bleach as Mysterious Man, Audrey Brisson as Cinderella, Nicola Hughes as the Witch, Rhashan Stone as the Baker and Alex Young as the Baker’s Wife.

They will be joined by Gillian Bevan as Jack’s mother, Nathanael Campbell as the Wolf / the Prince, Maria Conneely as Rapunzel, Lauren Conroy as Little Red Riding Hood, Phoebe Fildes as Lucinda, Samuel Holmes as the Steward, Charlotte Jaconelli as Florinda, Henry Jenkinson as the Prince and Barney Wilkinson as Jack.

Into The Woods puts a spin on the classic Brothers Grimm fairytales with music and lyrics from Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Lapine.

In this production, a young girl playing with her grandfather’s toy theatre imagines an upside down, fairy tale world. A baker and his wife must set out to reverse a curse which has left them childless and hunt down four magical items to lift the spell. On the way, they meet Little Red Riding Hood (plus a captivating Wolf), Rapunzel and Cinderella, charming Princes (and the obligatory, less charming, Stepsisters), Jack (he of beanstalk fame) and, of course, a Witch.

This much-loved masterpiece combines some of our best-known folk tales into a captivating musical treat. Into the Woods is about the stories we tell, the paths we take and the lessons we pass on. Expect giants, a cow, hair, towers, a Royal ball, magic beans and more hair in this brilliantly one-of-a-kind theatrical adventure!

The question is, do the characters, who turn out not to be as simple as they seem, actually deserve to live happily ever after? In fact, is that even possible?
