INTO THE WOODS
May 13 - June 6, 2021
A timeless and deeply relevant Tony Award winning musical, Into The Woods is one of Stephen Sondheim's most inventive works. Directed by ACT’s Artistic Director Daniel C. Levine, this sophisticated fairy-tale mash-up tells the story of a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two embark on a journey into the woods to change their fate. Many wishes are granted, but as the characters discover, every wish can have far-reaching consequences and “anything can happen in the woods”.
2021 / 2022 SEASON
September 30 - October 24, 2021
When an overworked mother and her teenage daughter magically swap bodies, they have just one day to make things right again. Freaky Friday, a new musical based on the hit Disney film, is a heartfelt, comedic, and unexpectedly emotional update on an American classic. By spending a day in each other's shoes, Katherine and Ellie come to appreciate one other's struggles, learn self--acceptance, and realize the immeasurable love and mutual respect that bond a mother and daughter. With music and lyrics by the Tony Award winning team of Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, Freaky Friday has become one of the most popular new musicals of the year!
