INTO THE WOODS cast announced for run at Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favourite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece and rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score (soon to be a Disney film) are both enchanting and touching.

The story 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.

The cast includes Paul Hutton (Baker), Jo Wickham (Bakers Wife), Helena Raeburn (The Witch), Annie Kirkman (Cinderella), Josh Pugh (Cinderella's Prince / Wolf), Tim Phelps (Rapunzel's Prince), Hugh O' Donnell (Jack), Emma Ralston (Little Red Ridinghood), Lydia Jenkins (Lucinda), Macey Cherrett (Florinda), Claire Hawkins (Cinderella's Stepmother), Sarah Waddell (Jack's Mother), Joshua Coley (Steward), Robert Oliver (Narrator), Emma Devlin (Rapunzel), Stuart Murray (Mysterious Man) and Christina Thornton (Cinderella's Mother / Granny / Giant). 

Leading the Creative Team is Tim McArthur (Director and Musical Staging) with Aaron Clingham (Musical Director and Orchestrations), who are the successful team behind last years Days of Hope, 2012's She Loves Me (4 Offie Nominations) and 2010's Follies.

It'll play at the Ye Olde Rose and Crown Theatre, 53 Hoe Street, London, E17 4SA and run through 7th - 31st October 2014.
