FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — If you’re looking for something to do this weekend, consider seeing Dr. Kearney Middle School Musical Theatre’s latest production, Into the Woods Jr.
It debuted last night at the North Peace Culture Centre, and continues tonight and tomorrow night. The show starts at 7 p.m. and runs for an hour and a half.
The musical follows a baker and his wife, who learn they’ve been cursed by the Witch next door. They embark on a quest — deceiving and stealing from such already-victimized characters as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Rapunzel — to get the things they need to break the spell.
However, the story isn’t as simple as ‘happily ever after,’ as decisions come with consequences.
Into the Woods Jr., appropriate for all ages, is based on the Broadway production which won several Tony Awards, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and the original book by James Lapine.
It’s noted that there may be minimal use of a fog machine during the production.
Tickers are on sale, $15 for Adults, $13 for Students/Seniors, and $11 for Children. Children under five have free admission. Tickets can be bought at the NPCC Box Office.
