Park Players Productions, Inc. presents Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods, in which classic fairy tales ("Cinderella," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Little Red Riding Hood," and others) are woven into the tale of a baker and his wife, who seek to break a spell of childlessness laid upon them by a crabby witch. In Act 1, a farcical, hilarious romp, the characters plot to get their wishes by whatever means necessary. All seems rosy until Act 2, when a furious giantess arrives by beanstalk to seek revenge on behalf of her husband, whom Jack killed. Events turn serious as the characters learn about community responsibilities, the penalties of greed, and the consequences of their actions.
