  • Into The Woods: What happens after happily ever after? Stephen Sondheim’s bewitchingly witty fairytale mashup Into the Woods investigates through a clever convolution of characters from Brothers Grimm folklore, including Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Jack and the Beanstalk. With a little wizardry of their own, Elm Street Cultural Arts Village will transform the Theater into an enchanted forest — a prime storybook setting, supremely conducive to magic and mayhem. Destined to charm audiences of all ages, Into The Woods is deeply touching one moment and laugh-out-loud funny the next. Expertly crafted songs by the most celebrated musical theatre composer of our time makes this hodgepodge of hocus pocus irresistibly spellbinding.
