Into the Woods

The San Marcos High School Performing Arts department proudly presents the Tony award-winning, Stephen Sondheim musical, “Into The Woods.” Directed by Riley Berris, “Into The Woods,” is a musical journey based on the Brothers Grimm fairy tale characters. Familiar themes of “happily ever after” are questioned as real-life predicaments and encountered in the attempt to make dreams come true. Starring such characters as Cinderella (Elise Aquilon), Little Red Riding Hood (Maddie Thomas), Jack (Dillon Stave), Rapunzel (Emily Steidl) and others, who are joined by new characters like the Witch (Ariana Rubio) who has placed a curse on the Baker (Eddie O’Toole) and his wife (Lily McWhirter).

This wickedly funny musical begins through the eyes of the Narrator as he introduces the characters through their wishful desires. Cinderella wishes to go to the King's Festival; Jack needs his cow Milky White to give milk; and the Baker and Baker’s Wife hopes they can have a child. As each story unfolds and the characters must venture “into the woods” to fulfill their dreams, issues of morality, courage, and sacrifice are revealed. They must face off against a giant and a witch in order to maintain stability. They must confront issues of identity and self-sacrifice. And ultimately, we realize that The Woods are not just a physical place but also a place of growth, beauty and tragedy as these characters unite and change together. In the end, this joyful, poignant musical leaves you with the question of what really happens after "happily ever after"?

The soaring music and the sophisticated score makes this one of the best musicals of all time. Taking advantage of the extraordinary talent pool of actors, singers and musicians in San Marcos High’s performing arts department, we are thrilled to present “Into the Woods.”
