Director Jere Van Patten said the show is a fun, yet dark, musical that warns people to be careful what they wish for, because they just might get it.
“Into the Woods is what you get when you take all of your favorite fairytale characters and throw them into one place under the genius of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine,” Van Patten said. “This is a creative take on the stories we all grew up with that audiences of all ages will relate to and enjoy."
One of Sondheim's most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show, produced by SueAnne Lucius, Chair of MCC’s Music Department. The comedy stars McKenna Seckman as the witch, Jonathan Holdsworth as the baker and Elise Stoffer as the baker’s wife. Most recently, Holdsworth starred in MCC’s production of “The Producers” and was nominated for the prestigious Irene Ryan Scholarship Award from the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival.
The production runs Feb. 27 – March 8 in the MCC Theatre, 1833 W. Southern Avenue, Mesa.
For ticket information, please call the MCC Box Office at 480-461-7172 or choose your seats online at www.ezticketlive.com/mcc. Into the Woods is rated PG and recommended for audiences over 8 years old. Please be aware that strobe lights, smoke, haze, and other special effects are used in this production.
