Siena Heights University is set to premiere “Into the Woods” at Haller Stage in the Performing Arts Center throughout homecoming weekend, beginning Friday, October 13, and ending Sunday, October 15.
“Into The Woods” is a timeless musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, taking inspiration from the classic Brothers Grimm fairytales. “Into the Woods” brings childhood favorites to life in a way never imagined as the character’s stories twist and intertwine. Its universal themes, challenging music, and rich storytelling make “Into the Woods” a favorite among professional and academic theaters around the world. The show has won Tony, Grammy, and Drama Desk awards and has been regarded as a classic for 30 years with many Broadway revivals.
Theatre Siena’s rendition will be directed by Michael Yuen, an Assistant Professor of Musical Theatre at Siena Heights University. Of the show, Yuen notes, “It has been an honor to work on this production with the cast and crew. The students always bring such a vibrancy to the stage, and it is truly remarkable to watch that energy paired with such a celebrated work.”
On October 13 and 14, the show begins at 8:00 p.m. On Sunday, October 15, the show begins at 2:30 p.m.
