CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement presents a miniature production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s cult-classic musical, Into the Woods. Co-directed by CCM Prep instructors Becca Kloha Strand and Becky Childs, the 60-minute junior version of the musical is presented on Thursday, May 3 through Saturday, May 5, 2018, in CCM’s Cohen Family Studio Theater.

The production features the students of CCM’s Junior Musical Theatre Intensive program, who range from 9 to 14 years old. Into the Woods Jr. features beloved fairytale characters — Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch — in a whimsical retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.

Audience members familiar with the original Into the Woods will recognize most of the junior version from act one of the original. Into the Woods premiered on Broadway in 1987, where it won Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Book. It has been revived many times at major playhouses, and it was adapted for film in 2014, which received three Academy Award nominations and three Golden Globe nominations.

You can see the CCM Prep’s Into the Woods Jr. this weekend in Cohen Family Studio Theater. Single tickets are $15 general admission, $10 for non-UC students and FREE for UC students with valid ID. Visit the CCM Box Office or call 513-556-4183 for more information.
