This award-winning musical by Sondheim includes many of your favourite characters: Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his Beanstalk!), and of course the Witch all who meet and interact in this whimsical & original show. You will step into adventure as their different stories intertwine with each other when they all journey into the woods.

The musical weaves together the tales of a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; a Princess who wishes to attend the King's festival; Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk; and Little Red Riding Hood who just wants to bring grandma a few croissants! 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.

Performing several shows a year, every summer we produce a musical in one of the local beautiful garden squares. Being part of the show is an amazing opportunity for anyone who enjoys singing, dancing and acting. This years cast will be made up of primary school children, teens (secondary school) and adults.
