BottledSnail Productions is thrilled to present its major production for 2018: the Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, Into the Woods.
This fun, witty and ultimately very moving musical weaves together the stories of a number of well-known fairy tale characters, who – along with a poor baker and his wife – venture into the woods in pursuit of their wishes. They quickly learn, however, that the means used to achieve their dreams can have lasting consequences.
Director, Sam Pearce says “Whilst Into the Woods is very witty and a lot of fun, it also explores some serious and universal themes. Each of the characters in the story ventures into the woods in search of a ‘wish’. They quickly learn, however, that the means used to achieve their wishes can have long term (and, in some cases, deadly) consequences; not only for themselves, but for their loved ones and the wider community”, he says.
Produced by Valmai Vickers
Directed by Sam Pearce and Ellie Morrison
Music Direction by David Butler (David Butler Studios) and Aimee Nguyen
Choreography by Kristy Griffin and Naomi Hickey-Humble
