Tyne Theatre Productions present Into the Woods in March 2018! BUY TICKETS HERE.
The show will launch the society’s third year of fundraising productions for the benefit of the Tyne Theatre & Opera House Preservation Trust. We have had over 200 new and old friends to volunteer for our previous shows, which include Pirates of Penzance (2015), Sweeney Todd (2016), Oklahoma! (2016), Little Shop of Horrors (2017) and West Side Story (2017).
James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favourite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.
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.
Tyne Theatre Productions is part of Tyne Theatre and Opera House Preservation Trust (Charity Number 1120746). Funds raised from this performance will contribute to the preservation and future restoration of the Grade 1 listed Victorian Opera House.
