Boynton Drama Club Presents: Into the Woods Jr.

Into the Woods Jr. is a new take on Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s groundbreaking musical fairytale about wishes and the choices we make. The Boynton Middle School Drama Club brings this fantastic story to the stage December 12 - 15, 2019. 
Into the Woods Jr flyer

Be careful what you wish for, as Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s crooked fairytale comes to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical. Into the Woods Jr. features all of your favorite characters—Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), and the Witch—in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables. 

The musical centers on a baker and their wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give him some milk. When the baker couple learns that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever. 

The aesthetic for the show includes a climate-conscious design that makes appropriate use of reused and reimagined “trash” in the set. Likewise, costuming will have an imperfect ‘edge,’ taking inspiration from Steampunk and sustainable fashion.
