It leads the audience on a journey to another side of fairy tales as they explore the pain and joy of growing up, communal responsibility and passing on values to children. The story follows a childless baker (Jeff Bryan) and his @ife (Jill Dupras), cursed by a wicked witch (Claire Kepple), who go off "into the woods" in hopes of ridding themselves of the curse. They encounter Cinderella (Kristina Marr), Little Red Riding Hood (Lydia Morgan), the Woff (David Riley), Jack the Giant Killer (John Flosi), Rapunzel (Breanna Tibbedeaux), her Prince (Dale Morgan),and ..... ., "We feel very fortunate to be doing this show."
