Student follow Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Jack and His Beanstalk, and the Witch, and Journey "Into the Woods" beginning in April.

CALGARY, APRIL 21 - 24  – Students from SIR WILFRID LAURIER will offer CALGARY an amusingly different way to think about everyone's favorite fairy tale characters through their production of Into the Woods JR. It was announced today by Freddie Gershon, CEO of Music Theatre International (MTI).  The show featuring 30 STUDENTS FROM GRADE 6 - 9, premieres on APRIL 21, 2020.

“There is great excitement in our school community for this project and the expected benefits that the students and the broader school community will gain, including: school pride, complex literacy skills and realising our capacity as a team to complete great projects,” Mr Taylor, show director, says.

SIR WILFIRD LAURIER  will present Into the Woods JR. on APRIL 21 - 24  AT 6:30 PM IN THE LIGHTNING THEATRE. Tickets are $10 AND $15, and will be available through our school office starting in December 2019 - STAY TUNED! For more information on the show please check out our school website!! 

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 embarks on a quest – swindling, deceiving, and stealing from such already-victimized characters as Cinderella, Little Red Ridding 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.  

Into the Woods JR. is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI).  All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. 421 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019 Phone: 212-541-4684 Fax: 212-397-4684 www.MTIShows.com.
