Asheville Arts Center Presents: Into the Woods

February 13, 2009

The Asheville Arts Center is presenting the Broadway hit musical Into the Woods on February 18 and 19th at the Diana Wortham Theatre. Music & Lyrics: Stephen Sondheim.

Based on a eclectic merging of fairy tales, the plot is about a childless baker and his wife who can’t have a child. The witch next door has a solution. All they have to do is get a cow as white as milk, a cape as red as blood, hair as yellow as corn, and a slipper as pure as gold.

Good thing their fairy tale neighbors Jack, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Cinderella are there to help them out before (and after) Happily Ever After.
The Moral – Be careful what you wish for – children who adore you may be watching. Let’s just say it is a Fairy Tale that is well in touch with reality.

The Asheville Arts Center believes that the performing arts should be available to and accessible by everyone. They accomplish this through a scholarship fund. Into the Woods, is part of an effort to raise funds for the scholarship fund.
