Directed by Kate Adams-with musical direction by Ginger Newman-The Larry Keeton Theatre will present Into the Woods, Stephen Sondheim's musical retelling of classic fairy tales, July 12- 28 at the Donelson venue. Nashville photographer (and drummer!) Rick Malkin captured the show's all-star cast in some great promotional shots.

Appearing in the Keeton Theatre production are an all-star group of actors and actresses including Mallory Gleason as The Witch, Janette Bruce as The Baker's Wife, Anthony Just as The Baker, Laura Crockarell as Cinderella and Jonathan Perry as Jack.

Into the Woods blends several classic fairy tales and gives them a new zest while cautioning the audience "careful the things you say, children will listen…" The well-known characters of Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Little Red Riding Hood are joined by the Baker and his Wife who have been cursed with childlessness by a witch and desperately want to break the curse.

Act One presents the intertwined stories of these beloved characters that end with Happily Ever After and Act Two shows us what follows when their stories have come to their known conclusions, and teaches several important lessons about parenting and community.

The show features a set designed by Jim Manning and costumes by Laura Higgins.

 "This show is so brilliantly written and truly shows off Sondheim's cleverness in interweaving lyrics with his music," Adams says. "It is wonderful watching this cast embrace the challenge of his work and have so much fun with it."

Also appearing in the show will be participants of the 2012 Keeton Summer Theater Camp who will also be presenting a pre-show of their own creation based on other Grimm brothers' fairy tales not featured in Into the Woods.

Performances on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 7 p.m. and Sunday afternoons at 2 p.m. Additional matinees geared towards younger audiences will feature only Act One of the show and will be at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for Children and Seniors.

Tickets for the Act One only matinees are $11.00. Into the Woods is presented without a meal.

The theater is located at 108 Donelson Pike in the FiftyForward Donelson Station building.
