Go "Into the Woods" this Weekend

You may have read the book by James Lapine or saw the Tony award-winning musical on Broadway, but you haven't seen anything until you see it at Vol State.
The Vol State Visual and Performing Arts Department presents "Into the Woods". If you are a fan of childhood fairly tales like Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and many more, you will definitely enjoy this production.

“The whole musical is a fairy tale gone awry,” said Aime Lara, who plays the role of the witch who places a curse on a man and his wife. Don’t be frightened by the appearance of the witch, because her voice is bound to win you over. Each cast member sings his/her heart out for this performance.

Music is one reason to come watch, but laughter is guaranteed while watching the performance the audience will truly enjoy themselves. 

"Be prepared for a lot of laughter and a lot of surprises," said Amanda Schneider, who plays the role of Florinda. "This is not your run of the mill fairy tale." 

It’s a story for all ages with a lesson to be learned. Samantha Curington, who plays the role of Little Red Riding Hood, said the audience can expect good hearty belly laughs and a lot of twists.
Come check out the Broadway musical performed Vol State style this weekend in the Wemyss Auditorium in Caudill Hall Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. Admission is only $5 at the door and free for Vol State students, faculty and staff with I.D.
