Audition for Into the Woods


From Nola Werlinich ’17:

I wish, more than anything… that you’ll COME AUDITION FOR INTO THE WOODS!

Into the Woods is a musical about a childless baker and his wife who encounter a witch (your chance to share a role with Meryl Streep), while fairy tale characters learn to deal with the consequences of their wishes. A little movie adaptation was recently released… you might have heard of it. The stage version is way better, though. Ask anyone. (Except maybe Meryl.)

Performances are April 23rd, 24th and 25th.

Auditions will be:
Friday 1/30 from 5:30-9:30 in the Usdan Multi Purpose Room (B25)
Saturday 1/31 from 2:00-5:00 in the East Room

Into the Woods Auditions

Audition for Stephen Sondheim’s musical fairytale masterpiece, Into the Woods!

An ambivalent Cinderella? A blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood? A Prince Charming with a roving eye? A witch…who raps? They’re all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairy tale. When a baker and his wife learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk). Everyone’s wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results.
