Into the Woods


Sometimes the things you most wish for are not to be touched.

What if "happily ever after" isn't so happy after all? In Sondheim's Tony Award-winning musical "Into the Woods," Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood and other fairy tale characters venture into a forest to pursue their hearts’ greatest desires. But they soon learn the tangled consequences of getting exactly what you wish for.

Professor Bud Coleman directs a cast of CU Theatre & Dance Department's talented student performers in the elegant University Theatre.
