The Muses require strong dancing and singing ability as their role will be very important in this production. Must be comfortable wearing a leotard and body paint. Pan range: Eb3 - A4 (tenor) or Eb3 - C4 (alto)

This show is going to be a great experience with hilarious doubling, breaking the fourth wall and audience interaction. It is important that those interested in this production are willing to give it their all since it is a high energy show and will require those involved to not be afraid to challenge themselves. Please give it your all at auditions and be ready to let your creative heart and mind come to life!

Show Synopsis from MTI web site

Into The Woods


Book by  James Lapine
Music and Lyrics by  Stephen Sondheim


2 Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG-13
Licensed Version (2009)

The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make.

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and rare modern classic. The TONY Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to attend the King's Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

One of Sondheim's most popular works, Into The Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy. Designers will especially enjoy highlighting the fantastical elements of this magical word.
