About Into the Woods
Your favorite fairy tale characters come together for a fantastic adventure in Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods. Cinderella, Jack, and Little Red Ridinghood, along with a Baker and his wife, all have wishes they hope to fulfill. Lucky for them, wishes come true, just not for free. The baker and his wife discover that their neighbor (an ugly, old witch) reveals a curse she placed on their family. In order to reverse the effects of her spell, they must go into the woods where they meet others on their own journeys. Along the way, they all have to decide what they are willing to do to make their dreams a reality. When things go awry, the group must band together to decide if their wishes are worth protecting.
Since 1923, musicians and artists have earned their education through Life Pacific University, finding creative ways to communicate the message of the gospel with a relevance that is unique to their culture. Now, twice a year, when the Rolf K. McPherson Chapel transforms with extravagant sets and magnificent props, members of LPU and the local community fill the seats to behold entertaining and engaging performances from a talented cast of LPU students. Our theater productions allow students to express their creativity, develop their talents, and learn to use their gifts to serve communities and glorify Christ.
