“into the woods ….. and home before
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.”
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
The Two Of
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
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
conduct this score with these fine musicians is a wonderful experience.” Constance Lopez, co-producer and cast as the
jinxed Witch states that, “to
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 &
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.
