CHS Spring Drama Production - Into The Woods

Capital Productions proudly presents

We all know the stories of Cinderella (Vanessa McCormick), Little Red Riding Hood (Claire Ramsey), and Jack and the Beanstalk (Kameron Bustetter), but what if these fantasies did not end how we remembered them? This mystical fairytale follows the life of a Baker (Asher Entrekin) and his Wife (Tatum Zimmerman) through a long journey when they find out they cannot bear a child. Due to a nasty spell that causes their infertility they go on a hunt for items that a Witch (Emma Sorensen) requires in order to unleash this evil magic. Through many adventures their stories get intertwined with other well known ones, and with that many things start to turn Grimm. Will the Baker and his Wife ever find what they need? Find out as we all take an adventure Into the Woods. The show runs April 23, 24, 25, 30, May 1, and 2 at 7:30 p.m. Each performance will be held in the Performing Arts Auditorium at Capital High School, 2707 Conger Avenue N.W., Olympia. Tickets are $7 for students and senior citizens and $10 for the general public. Call the box office at (360) 596-8053 for more information and to reserve your tickets.
