A mix and match of favorite fairy tales from everyone’s childhood, “Into the Woods” includes fair young maidens, an occasional giant, dashing, if slightly obnoxious, princes, a moderate-sized bad wolf and, of course, a witch. A cow and a boy with beans are central characters, some bakers who are unhappy because they can’t get anything cooking in the oven and some wicked step-relatives all cross paths at one time or another as they wander “Into the Woods.”

Everyone has wishes and no one can imagine what might really happen if all those wishes are granted. Well stocked with fairy tale costumes, really big hair and a score of Sondheim, “Into the Woods” is suitable for all audiences.

Into the Woods is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).

Possum Point Players is supported, in part, by grants from the Delaware Division of the Arts, a state agency dedicated to nurturing and supporting the arts in Delaware, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
