Rutland Youth Theatre to present ‘Into The Woods JR’ at The Paramount Theatre

Saturday and Sunday, May 20-21—RUTLAND­— On Saturday and Sunday this weekend, The Rutland Youth Theatre will perform “Into The Woods JR” at The Paramount Theatre in Rutland. Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale will come to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical.  “Into the Woods JR” features all of your favorite characters — Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch — in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables. 

The musical centers on 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, and wind up changed forever. The concert will be shown at 7 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday with a matinee show at 2 p.m. on Sunday. 

Tickets are $15 for adults plus  tax/fees; for children under 18 and seniors over 65 , $10 plus  tax/fees. For more information, visit:
