The Geneva Drama Club’s production of “Into the Woods” opens at 7:30 tonight in the Geneva High School auditorium. Performers are scheduled to hit the stage Friday night, and at 7:30 pm Saturday and 2 pm Sunday.
“Into the Woods,” written by James Lapine with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, brings everyone’s favorite storybook characters together for a Tony Award-winning book and score. The story follows 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 they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse.
Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
