Emory & Henry’s theatre department is proudly performing the Stephen Sondheim musical, Into the Woods. Natalie Foley from Salem served as Paint Crew during this production.
Based on a book by James LaPine, this play re-imagines and redefines the world of fairytales into something that is more for adults than children.
Into the Woods intertwines the stories of Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel with the story of the Baker and his wife, who have been cursed to remain childless by the witch. The play follows the Baker and his wife on their mission to break the curse.
Kelly J.G. Bremner, an assistant professor at Emory & Henry College, is directing the production. “When is a fairytale story more for adults than children? Perhaps it is this: When the moral leaves us in tears,” said Dr. Bremner.
Daniel L. Wheeler is the production designer for Into the Woods. He has been a part of the Emory & Henry faculty since 2010 and is currently serving as chair of the theatre department. During his tenure here, Wheeler has been praised for taking set, lighting and costume design to a new level of excellence.
Other members of the production staff are Christine Young Gerber, music director, and Annalee Tull, choreographer.
The cast and crew are composed entirely of E&H students that have worked tirelessly to make this production possible.
