Cast for Into the Woods selected

Preliminary cast list has been posted for the fall production of Stephen Sondheimʻs “Into the Woods”, which was recently made into a movie.  The musical throws together various fairy tale characters (Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack & the Beanstalk, etc.) who find themselves literally and figuratively “in the woods” as they face their dreams and fears.  Production will begin at the start of the next school year, after the Edinburgh Festival Fringe performance of Hāʻupu.
