THEATRE PERFORMANCES

"Into the Woods"

by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine

Directed by Dr. Martin Friedman

Tony Award-winning, Academy Award-nominated musical

So many possibilities...

The world in which they live is all so recognizable... and then suddenly, they're following their desires, straying from the path into the forest. Storybook characters on a quest that looks nothing like a fairy tale. Witches, princes, princesses and giants traveling deep into the woods that were once so liberating and fun, but are now something a little creepier. And the simple questions of romance and adventure are becoming a bit more complicated.

Feb. 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27 at 7:30 p.m.

Feb. 7, 14, 21, 28 at 2 p.m.

Dr. Wayne L. Rodehorst Performing Arts Center

Tickets:

Tickets are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and $7 for students.

Visit lakelandcc.edu/arts to order tickets online.

Call 440.525.7134 for ticket purchases.

Call 440.525.7526 for production information.

This production is supported in part by a generous grant from the Lake County Visitors Bureau.
