James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece… and a rare modern classic. The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.It’s a touching, thought-provoking and darkly comic show. We are excited to bring you this rich musical tale, directed by the magical Shannon McLoud!
The show has some mature themes, and is considered PG-13.
Rehearsals will be on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, from 6-9 pm, at the Captain Isaac Paine School, 160 Foster Center Road, Foster, RI
Performance dates are: May 8, 9, 15, 16, 17, 2020
