Into the Woods

Winthrop University presents “Into the Woods,” February 18–21 at 8 p.m. and February 22 at 2 p.m. in Johnson Theatre. Book by James Lapine, music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. What happens after ‘Happily Ever After’? In Sondheim and Lapine’s beloved retelling of Grimm’s classics, a parade of familiar folktale figures find their way ‘into the woods’ and try to get home before dark. What begins as a irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children. Directed by Stephen Gundersheim. Reserved seating.
