Arizona Broadway Theatre (ABT), the highest-attended, live year-round theatre in the Valley of the Sun, will deliver the return of the twisted fairytale Into the Woods to Phoenix from May 31 through June 23. Meet the cast in the photos below!

Considered one of Sondheim's most Popular Productions, Into the Woods premiered on Broadway in 1987 with Bernadette Peters embodying the role of the Witch and Joanna Gleason portraying the Baker's Wife. The acclaimed musical won a number of Tony Awards including Best Score, Best Book and Best Actress in a Musical.

The story follows a baker and his wife as they set off on a journey to remove a curse placed on them by a beguiling witch. In the process, they find their lives interwoven together with Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack (and his magic beans), Rapunzel, royal princes and a wolf as they cross paths in the woods.

"Into the Woods offers a realistic and unique take on 'once upon a time,' and gives the audience a wonderful, theatrical display of growth and self discovery," said James Rio, director of Into the Woods at Arizona Broadway Theatre. "This production takes popular fairytales and breathes real-life struggle into them creating the common man's experience with happily-ever-after."

Prominent local talent lead the production at ABT, including award-winning actress Cassandra Norville Klaphake as the Witch, and one of Echo Magazine's "Five Actors To Watch" Brad York in the role of the Baker. The two will be joined by a number of local and New-York-based performers such as Katrina Hagofsky (Sunset Boulevard) as The Baker's Wife, David Errigo (Footloose) as Jack, Carolyn McPhee (9 to 5) as Cinderella's Stepmother and Brad Rupp (Oklahoma!) as Cinderella's Prince/The Wolf.

Tickets are on sale now for evening and matinee performances of the professional dinner theatre's sixth installment in Season Eight. Prices vary according to date, time and availability. Into the Woods contains content that might not be suitable for all ages; children under 12 are not recommended.
