This week, Arts in McNairy will attempt their most ambitious production to date when they take on Stephen Sondheim’s musical “Into the Woods.” The performances begin Friday, June 22 and run through Tuesday the 26th. Shows are nightly at 7:30 p.m., except for the Sunday show, which will be  a 2 p.m. matinee. Tickets can be bought at the door and are $10 for adults and $5 for students.

The musical combines the stories of several Brothers Grimm tales and explores the consequences of the characters’ actions. The main characters are taken from the stories of Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Cinderella. The production also incorporates other well-known children’s tales to come up with a unique take on the traditional morals that our culture has borrowed from these centuries-old stories.
