Young actors perform ‘Into the Woods Jr.’


First Posted: 8/10/2014

If you loved the musical “Wicked,” you’ll certainly enjoy Stephen Sondheim’s delightful musical, “Into the Woods Jr.,” especially because it is being performed by young people ages 6 thru 18. This special version of the Tony-Award winning musical is designed for young performers and 25 children and teens will perform the show at 2 p.m. today, Aug. 17 at the Music Box Dinner Playhouse, 196 Hughes St., Swoyersville.

The performance is the culmination of a four-week summer theatre workshop that introduces young people to the theatre and all of its aspects.

The show is being performed just two weeks after adults at the Music Box performed a lengthier version of the same musical. Many cast members of the “adult” version are tutoring and “mentoring” members of the “Into the Woods Jr.” cast.

The show is directed by workshop director Dana Feigenblatt.

Admission prices are $12 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. For reservations and information, call 570-283-2195.
