Into The Woods

  • musical logo Imagine being a 17-year-old high school drama student working alongside theater professionals to design and perform Into the Woods on a famed Pasadena stage. This winter, it’s a dream come true for more than 200 PUSD students and teachers as they prepare for the unique production that will be enjoyed by an audience of 8,500 students and community members.

    Into The Woods is the lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables, with Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine bringing the cockeyed fairytales to life on stage featuring all of your favorite characters — Cinderella, her prince, Little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf, Jack (his beanstalk, his mother and cow Milky White) and the Witch – who has cast a powerful spell.

    Into the Woods is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). This production brings a fresh local perspective, with references to Pasadena geography, landmarks, and history of the region, as well as the social and systemic challenges faced by underrepresented communities in the region over time.
