Into the Woods
The MGA Academy is proud to present our third-year Musical Theatre students in a Sondheim classic.
Weds 11th, Thurs 12th, Fri 13th May at 7.30pm
Sat 14th May at 2.30pm and 7.30pm
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. Our 3rd Year Musical Theatre students present the enchanting Tony Award-winning piece, hemmed by UK-based director, Max Bex Roberts. 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.
