Greenville Theatre Presents “Into the Woods”

Greenville Theatre

Join Greenville Theatre as it goes Into the Woods from February 22 to March 10, 2024!

This modern-day classic brings together everyone’s favorite storybook characters with a twist as they embark on unexpected journeys Into The Woods. With a Tony Award-winning score by the late Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, this show explores what happens after your fairytale wishes come true.

The musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood” (spelled “Ridinghood” in the published vocal score), “Jack and the Beanstalk”, “Rapunzel”, “Cinderella”, and several others. The musical is tied together by a story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family (the original beginning of the Grimm Brothers’ “Rapunzel”), their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.

Performances will take place Thursdays through Sundays, from February 22 to March 10, at the Greenville Theatre.
