The Dana Hall Upper School presents its spring musical, “Into the Woods,” on Friday, May 13, and Saturday, May 14, at 7:30 p.m., in Bardwell Auditorium. The performances are free and open to the public.
“Into the Woods” follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
“I chose this show because of its focus on an ensemble taking care of each other,” said Director of Theater Daniel Morris. “As the first Upper School musical on stage in three years, I wanted to do a show that reminds us of the power of collaboration. Maybe we all need a reminder that we are never fully alone — and help sometimes comes in unexpected places.”
