“Into the Woods,” a fairytale musical that holds many surprises and secrets, comes to the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in a mystical production.
Alissa Krantz, a senior theatre major from Lancaster, serves as the stage manager.
“Into the Woods” is a rethinking of typical fairytales, combining a traditional telling of classic stories with a continuous storyline of what happens after a wish is granted. Auditions included both acting and singing, bringing out new talents from the student actors.
“These students have been working extremely hard and are so excited to show the campus and community the final result,” said Jim Butchart, director and professor of theatre and dance. “The play is about wishes, and it is my wish you come and leave knowing a little more about life.”
The production opens Friday, Feb. 21, at 7:30 p.m. at Barnett Theatre in the Greenhill Center of the Arts, and runs until Saturday, March 1.
