Phoenix Theatre presents…..
Originally directed on Broadway by James Lapine
Orchestrations by Jonathan Tunick
With the words “Once Upon a Time,” the Narrator introduces four characters who each has a wish - Cinderella wishes to attend the King’s Festival, Jack wishes that his cow, Milky White, would give milk and The Baker and his Wife wish they could have a child.
While Little Red Riding Hood buys bread from the Baker to take to her grandmother, Jack’s weary mother nags him into selling the cow and Cinderella’s stepmother and stepsisters tease her about wanting to attend the King’s Festival.
As all begin their journeys into the woods, the characters and their stories brilliantly intertwine, exploring the consequences of their wishes and quests.
With a beautiful score by Stephen Sondheim and the intricate story line by James Lapine, this show is not to be missed!
This amateur production is presented by arrangement with JOSEF WEINBERGER LIMITED on behalf of MUSIC THEATRE INTERNATIONAL of New York
