Bellevue College to perform 'Into the Woods'


What happens after Happily Ever After, after all? Bellevue College theatre students will answer that in the Sondheim and Lapine musical "Into the Woods," a retelling of the Grimm classics.

The show combines a number of classic fairy tales into one narrative. A baker and his wife are assigned a number of tasks by a nearby witch; only after completing these duties will they be able to bear children. During their quest to fulfill the witches’ demands, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and his beanstalk, Rapunzel, Cinderella and numerous other fairy tale figures.

As the traditional stories intertwine new tales are told, yet the original fairy tales’ sense of wonder and, at times, darkness remains intact. The score, winner of Broadway’s Tony Award, includes such songs as “Children Will Listen,” “Giants in the Sky” and “No One Is Alone.”

The musical is appropriate for children age 12 and older and will be performed at 7:30 p.m. May 29-31 and June 4-7 at the Stop Gap Studio Theatre in the Carlson Theater building (E Building) on the Bellevue College campus, 3000 Landerholm Circle S.E.

Tickets are $12 for general admission and $10 students and BC faculty and can be purchased through A limited number of leftover tickets may be available for sale beginning at 6:30 p.m. on the day of each show.
