Join Eccentric Theater Company (ETC.) as we venture Into the Woods for our first outdoor theatrical production! Into the Woods follows a baker and his wife set out to reverse a witch's curse in hopes of having a child of their own. The couple’s quest takes them into the woods, where they encounter iconic characters - including Little Red Ridinghood, Jack and his beanstalk, Cinderella, Rapunzel, and a couple of lovelorn princes. Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine expertly weave together these Brothers Grimm fairytales into a timeless piece about stories we tell our children, how we search for what we wish for, and if there can truly be a "happy ever after."
