The College Light Opera Company is presenting Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods” as the ninth and final show of its 46th season. This is CLOC’s second production of “Into the Woods,” which was also done in the 2004 season.
“Into the Woods” is the story of a baker and his wife’s journey into the woods in search of a cow, a red cape, a strand of yellow hair and a golden slipper. These ingredients are necessary to lift a curse that has left them childless, put upon them by a witch. Along the way they encounter princes, wolves, giants and a host of familiar fairy tale characters. Through romance, magic, passion, tragedy and forgiveness, they soon discover that wishes can come true, but a happy ending is never as easy as it seems.
This production is led by stage director Corin Hollifield and music director Todd Florin.
The cast will feature Lindsay Cabaniss as The Witch, Joshua Gronlund as Rapunzel’s Prince, Will Hawkins as The Narrator, Jens Jacobson as The Wolf, Maggie Langhorne as Little Red Riding Hood, Nick Martiniano as Baker, Mike McCann as Cinderella’s Prince, and Caitlin Ruddy as Baker’s Wife.
