Stephen Sondheim’s beloved musical fairy tale, Into The Woods is coming to the Columbia County stage!  The Two Of Us Productions Inc., based in Columbia County NY, is proud to present a fully staged original production of Into The Woods, the multi-award winning Broadway musical.  Into The Woods is being presented from October 10th to 19th 2014 at the well-equipped Performing Arts Center at Taconic Hills Schools.  The Performing Arts Center is located in Craryville, NY on Rt. 23, just a short drive from Hudson NY, Hillsdale NY, or Great Barrington MA. 

Into The Woods uses the plots of several fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm, and ties them together with an original story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, their interaction with a Witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.  In addition to the baker & his wife, the main characters are drawn from Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Cinderella.  The reviewer for The Washington Post wrote “lovely score -- poised between melody and dissonance -- is the perfect measure of our tenuous condition. The songs invariably follow the characters' thinking patterns, as they weigh their options and digest their experience. Needless to say, that doesn't make for traditional show-stoppers. But it does make for vivacity of another kind. And Sondheim's lyrics...are brilliant.... I think you'll find these cast members alert and engaging.”

The Two Of Us Productions is very pleased to bring the charming musical fairy tale to our Hudson Valley audience.  The characters are engaging and interesting, presenting interesting problems and situations for our adult theater fans, but at the same time presenting a charming fairy tale of familiar characters for our younger audience members.  All in all, this will be a delightful evening for everyone.  With a new Disney movie of Into TheWoods coming out later this year, there is tremendous interest in this show and we are very pleased to bring this show to the local stage. 

The Two Of Us Productions has called together a tightly knit ensemble of experienced area actors and musicians to bring this wonderful musical drama to the local stage.  “Our rehearsal process has been an exciting one,” says Stephen Sanborn, director/conductor and co-producer for The Two Of Us Productions.  “To see this whimsical and at times bittersweet story, and Sondheims well known music come to life is truly a privilege.  Having the honor to conduct this score with these fine musicians is a wonderful experience.”  Constance Lopez, co-producer and cast as the jinxed Witch states that, “to be able to perform with such a talented cast and orchestra is a rare opportunity … it is very fulfilling to work with such a cohesive cast who truly see every role as important ”.  Stephen & Constance, working with their talented vocal director Daniel Galliher, are in the midst of rehearsing their 20 person cast and 14 piece orchestra, and looking forward to their opening on October 10th.
