Based on the beloved writings of L.

Through spectacular life-size puppetry and original music, the ensemble of Strangemen & Co. presents an inventive take on one of America's original fairy tales.

Hardy and lyrics by Jen Loring, The Woodsman creative team also includes James Ortiz (set and puppet design), Molly Seidel (costume design), Carol Uraneck (original costume design), Catherine Clark and Jamie Roderick (lighting design), Devin Dunne Cannon (associate director), Will Gallacher (movement coordinator), Aaron McDaniel (fight director) and Naomi Florin (music director & violinist).

The Woodsman ensemble features Benjamin Bass (Kalidah/Munchkin), Devin Dunne Cannon(understudy), Will Gallacher (Pa/Tinker), Alex J. Gould (Tinker/Munchkin), Amanda A. Lederer (The Witch/Tinker), Aaron McDaniel (understudy), Lauren Nordvig (Ma/Kalidah), James Oritz (Nick Chopper), Eliza Martin Simpson (Nimmee), Meghan St. Thomas (Munchkin) and Sophia Zukoski (The Witch/Munchkin).
