Once upon a time, in a far off Kingdom, lived a young maiden, a sad young lad and a childless baker with his wife……
“Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Brothers Grimm inspired musical, Into the Woods and Kirriemuir Amateur Operatic Society are delighted to bring this multi-award winning musical to Kirriemuir for the first time.
The story follows the Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go the King’s Festival, Little Red Riding Hood as she encounters the wolf on her way to granny’s and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When the Baker and his wife are visited by the neighbourhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse. By the end of Act I, everyone has gotten their wish and will seemingly live happily ever after. But in Act II, when Jack’s beanstalk brings a visit from an angry Giant, we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways. The community must come together to save each other and their kingdom, but sacrifices must be made.
