2:00pm: Into the Woods

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine

"Careful the things you say, children will listen."

A musical by Stephen Sondhein and James Lapine, Into the Woods intertwines the plots of several well-known fairy tales as it explores the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. “Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme, along with the message that people must come together to save each other.

7:30pm: As You Like It

By William Shakespeare

“All the world's a stage and all the men and women merely players”

As You Like It, one of Shakespeare's most frequently performed comedies, is a "hilarious tale of disguises and mistaken identities.” Harold Bloom wrote that Rosalind is among Shakespeare's greatest and most fully realized female characters.
