Live Theater is Back! Into the Woods
Live Theater is Back! Into the Woods
11/03/2021
Live theater is back! The Port Angeles Theatre Department, in partnership with the Music Department, presents Into the Woods, directed by Mark Valentine. The famous Stephen Sondheim musical combines several well-known fairytale stories and characters to create a funny, poignant, convoluted, tragic, and entertaining musical yarn. It is both a light-hearted romp and a cautionary tale. Characters such as Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack (of "Jack and the Beanstalk" fame), Little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf, the Witch, the Princes, the Princesses, the Baker, the Baker's Wife, and many others all meet up on their various journeys into the woods. The music is very much a part of the narrative and is almost continuous.
