July 25-28, 2013 - M-Act presents "Into the Woods"
An ambivalent Cinderella?  A blood-thirsty Little Red Ridinghood?  A Prince Charming with a roving eye?  A Witch ... who raps?  They are all among the cockeyed characters in James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim's fractured fairy tale. When a Baker and his wife learn they have been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell, swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood, Rapunzel and Jack.   Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results.  What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibilities and the stories we tell our children.  Show times are 7:30 p.m. on July 25,26,27 and at 2 p.m. on July 28 at the Marysville High School Auditorium.  Marysville Area Community Theatre is in its 31st season in Marysville!
