The Kentridge Players present its spring musical, “Into the Woods,” on stage in May At the Ridge Theatre, Kentridge High School, 12430 SE 208th St., Kent.

Performances are 7 p.m. May 1-4 and May 8-11, with 1:30 p.m. Saturday matinees May 4, 11.

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece … and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

One of Sondheim’s most popular works, “Into the Woods” is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.

The musical is under the direction of Jennifer Grajewski, Eia Waltzer and Savana Smith.

Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door or at showtix4u.com.
