The musical will have a three day run at the ASPV stage in the primary school. The dates are March 19, 20 & 21 at 7:00 pm each evening.

"Into the Woods" is an exciting and funny musical comedy that twists familiar fairy tales into a brand new story. When a Baker and his Wife learn they've been cursed by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell; swindling, deceiving and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk)!
