New York City during the Depression. Annie lives in an orphanage run by the ill-tempered, heavy drinking Miss Hannigan. Like the rest of the children, Annie doesn't like the orphanage and hates Miss Hannigan. When Annie is chosen to spend the Christmas holidays with the wealthy industrialist Oliver Warbucks, Miss Hannigan is infuriated that Annie will be spending the holidays in the lap of luxury.

Warbucks is charmed by Annie's spunk and good spirits and is eager to adopt her, but Annie is convinced that one day her real parents will come back to claim her. Warbucks loves her enough to offer a fifty thousand dollar reward in the search for her folks. That's when Miss Hannigan's con-artist brother Rooster and his floozy girlfriend Lily, concoct a scheme to pose as Annie's long lost parents. Along the way Annie befriends a mutt named Sandy and even President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.


SHOW DATES: July 12th, 13th, and 14th, 2008

When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, deceiving and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Ridding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk!)

With unforgettable roles, little dancing and no chorus, Into The Woods Junior showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors, where each performer shoulders an equal weight. The sophisticated score has been adapted to make it easier - though still challenging - for young performers.

Equally at home in large or intimate spaces, Into The Woods Junior is a funny and engaging way to get young people to think about the stories with which they've grown up and the ethical issues raised therein.

Sky Kintzel's directorial debut.
