Whidbey Children’s Theater’s new production of “Into the Woods” hopes to be something for everyone.
That’s why the theater is putting on a junior version of the show for younger audiences and a full version for a more mature crowd who might better appreciate Stephen Sondheim’s and James Levine’s slightly twisted take in this Tony-Award winning musical.
“Into the Woods Jr.” still weaves together the tales of such characters as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack — and his beanstalk — Rupunzel and The Witch. But this junior version has been adapted for young performers and their voices and will feature many of Whidbey Children’s Theater’s 9- to 13-year-old actors.
And, parents, take note: Whidbey Theater folks says this version is more appropriate for younger children than the full version of “Into the Woods.”
“Into the Woods Jr.” will be presented this weekend only, with performances at 7:30 p.m. today and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at Whidbey Children’s Theater, 222 Anthes Ave., Langley.
Saturday is family night and all tickets are $7. Tickets for all other shows are $12 for adults, $8 for students and seniors.
The theater’s teenage actors are cast in the full version of “Into the Woods,” which includes live musical accompaniment.
The full version of “Into the Woods” will be presented at 7:30 p.m. March 26 and 27 and April 2 and 3 and at 2 p.m. March 28 at Whidbey Children’s Theater, 222 Anthes Ave., Langley.
Tickets are $12 for adults, $8 for students and seniors.
