Into the Woods is Sondheim’s most popular musical, incorporating fairy tale characters such as Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, and Rapunzel and her mother, the Witch. The story follows a childless baker and his wife as they seek to start a family and overcome a curse placed upon them by the witch.

The production will feature several families, and has actors from Champaign-Urbana and surrounding towns, including Mahomet and Monticello. 

Our Witch is being portrayed by Sue Aldridge, recently retired Centennial High School drama teacher. Our director is Debra Myers, and a long-time friend of Debra and Sue, George Pendill, is joining us from his acting work in New York to play the Wolf.

The musical premiered on Broadway in 1987 and won Tony’s for Best Score, Best Book, and Best Actress in a Musical (for Joanna Gleason playing the Baker’s Wife.) Disney’s film adaptation was released in 2014, starring Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, and many others.

The show is being performed by area performers, including some parent/child combinations. It will also feature Sue Aldridge as the Witch. Sue retired last spring as the Centennial HS theatre director. We are also featuring a long-time friend of Sue and Debra’s, George Pindell, who is an actor currently based in NYC.
