Into the Woods

Readfield – Maranacook Community High School presented the musical “Into the Woods” by Stephen Sondheim, on November 16th through November 20th.

“Into the Woods” is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine. The main characters are taken from “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Jack and the Beanstalk”, “Rapunzel”, and “Cinderella”, as well as several others. The musical is tied together by a story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters during their journey.

Playing the part of Little Red was Emma Hatt. The witch was played by Cameryn Freeman and the Baker was played by Gavin Diou-Cass. The wolf was played by James Stratton.
