INTO THE WOODS Launches 40th Anniversary Season At The Roxy Regional Theatre

Venture into a fairytale mash-up at Clarksville's oldest professional theatre this month -- and find out what happens after the happily-ever-afters. INTO THE WOODS launches the 40th Anniversary Season at the Roxy Regional Theatre on Thursday, September 8, at 7:00pm.

"Be careful what you wish for" seems to be the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Brothers Grimm inspired musical, directed by Ryan Bowie with music direction by Tyler Saunders.

The story follows The Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to go to the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give some 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, along the way meeting a host of characters including Little Red, the Wolf, Rapunzel, and two princes. By the end of the first act, everyone has gotten their wish and will seemingly live happily ever after... but in Act II, when Jack's beanstalk brings them a visit from an angry Giant, we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways.

Starring Michael Floriano and Rachel Lind as The Baker and his Wife, Leah Mossman as Cinderella and Michael Ricciardone as Jack, INTO THE WOODS features Stacy Turner as The Witch, Donald Groves as The Narrator and Mysterious Man, Zoe Fox as Little Red Ridinghood, Ariana Perlson as Rapunzel, Sam Alan Johnson as Cinderella's Prince and the Wolf, David Ridley as Rapunzel's Prince, Jama Bowen as Jack's Mother and Cinderella's Mother, Emily Ruck and Brett Vance as Cinderella's Stepmother and Father, Olivia White and Faith Konty as Cinderella's stepsisters Florinda and Lucinda, Meghann Shoulders as Granny and The Giant's Wife, and David Graham as the puppeteer behind Jack's cow, Milky White (designed and constructed by Zachary Parker).

INTO THE WOODS is produced in part through the generous support of Dr. Ernie & Joan DeWald, Hugh & Joy Hatcher and Stuart Fillmore & Scott Phillips. This production is presented through special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials are provided by Music Theatre International (MTI).
