Into The Woods, Jr. ROUND ROCK - An adaptation of one of Sondheim's most popular works designed especially for young performers. The musical centers on 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 and wind up changed forever. With unforgettable roles, little dancing, and no chorus, Into The Woods JR. showcases a medium-sized ensemble of talented singers and actors. The sophisticated score has been adapted to make it easier - though still challenging -for young performers. Into The Woods JR. is a funny and engaging way to get young people to think about the stories with which they've grown up and the ethical issues raised therein. July 23, 7:30pm; July 29, 7:30pm; July 30, 2pm. August 6, 7:30pm, August 7, 2pm, August 12, 7:30pm & August 13, 2pm, at the Sam Bass Theatre, 600 N. Lee St, Round Rock.
