Into the Woods JR crop
01 Jun 2017
Into the Woods JR
At the Hoskins Centre, The Armidale School, Douglas Street (enter via Chapel Street). Time: 7.00pm (Thursday, Friday, Saturday), 2.00pm (Friday only). Cost: $15 (adult), $10 (student/concession) - available at www.trybooking.com/PNBA. For more information, phone 02 6776 5878. With a book by James Lapine and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Into the Woods JR. is based on the Broadway production which won several Tony Awards, including Best Score, Best Book, and Best Actress in a Musical. The musical follows a Baker and his Wife who learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door. The couple embark on a quest – swindling, deceiving and stealing from such already-victimised characters as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack (fresh off the beanstalk!) – to get the special objects required to break the spell. However, the story doesn’t simply end “happily ever after” as each character must now face the consequences of his/her decision. http://wordpress.as.edu.au/hoskins/

Tamsin Greig is Malvolia in a new twist on Shakespeare’s classic comedy of mistaken identity. A ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. The nearby households of Olivia and Orsino are overrun with passion. Even Olivia's upright housekeeper Malvolia is swept up in the madness. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible. Simon Godwin (NT Live: Man and Superman, NT Live: The Beaux’ Stratagem) directs this joyous new production with Tamsin Greig (Friday Night Dinner, Black Books, Episodes) as a transformed Malvolia.
