Shelton Takes You Into the Woods

Shelton Theatre Arts Department presents James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods February 14 – 17.  The musical production is a sophisticated dark comedy set in a magical world of fairy tales.  Everyone’s favorite storybook characters are brought together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.  Every character’s wish is granted in the play, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.  A classic case of “watch what you ask for … you might get it.”

Under the direction of Anné Hughes, Director of Fine Arts at Shelton, over 80 students will be involved as cast, crew or musicians.

Led by faculty member Clay Houston, students have entirely built the set, with assistance from volunteer crew members.

Students had an extra benefit from this production by working several days with renowned director Rod Caspers, recently retired from The University of Texas at Austin.  Musical director is Blair King.

Performances take place February 14, 15 and 16 at 7:00 pm and at 2:00 pm on February 17.  All performances take place in The Commons on Shelton’s campus, 15720 Hillcrest Road, Dallas, TX 75248. 

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students (through grade 12). Tickets may be purchased online or at the door.  A pre-show dinner takes place Friday, February 15, 5:00 – 6:30 pm.  Tickets must be purchased separately  in advance for $10.
