LCCC to present “Into the Woods Junior”

Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Thanks to a grant obtained by Laramie County Community College, a new theatre event is coming to Cheyenne: “Into the Woods Junior.”
Performances will take place this week only: Friday and Saturday, June 7 and 8, at 7 p.m. and a matinee on Sunday, June 9, at 2 p.m.

Tickets are general admission and available only at the door. Prices are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Performances will be held at the Mary Godfrey Playhouse on the corner of Pershing and Windmill.
 
Students from junior and senior high schools across the city are participating as actors, designers and technicians for the show, which is directed by Wende Wolfe-Perez and produced by Dave Gaer. 

The production is actually an abbreviated version of “Into the Woods,” which has been modified in this format to be more suitable for younger performers and audiences.
“Into the Woods Junior” features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Lapine. The original version of the show won three Tony Awards when it was first seen on Broadway. Since then, it has become one of the most enduring and produced shows across the country.

This event is made possible by the Career Pathways & Career Exploration Through Youth Theatre Project and Carl D. Perkins Act of 2006.
