Youth Summer Camp - 2011

All About Theatre proudly presents Into The Woods Junior as the first youth session for our summer program this year. The second session starts in mid-July.

Into The Woods Jr.,

The Brothers Grimm "go Broadway" as Sondheim and Lapine offer up a cockeyed fairy tale where all of your favorite characters-Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and The Witch-meet and interact on their journeys. With unforgettable roles, little dancing and no chorus, Into The Woods Junior showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors. The sophisticated score has been adapted to make it easier-though still challenging-for young performers. 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.

Offered for young performers aged 8 through 13 year olds.

Enrollment is limited to 36 students.
