ELLSWORTH - The Grand announced the return of George Stevens Academy's theatrical department presenting Steven Sondheim's classic musical 'Into the Woods,' directed by Moira McMahon on Friday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 17 at 2 and 7 p.m.

In this staging of one of Sondheim's most beloved shows, the audience follows classic fairy tale characters like Cinderella, Jack (of 'and the Beanstalk' fame), Little Red Riding Hood and many more as they explore what happens after their respective stories conclude. Beautiful Sondheim melodies such as 'Children Will Listen' and 'Giants in the Sky' permeate an exploration of multiple themes: growing up, parenting children, accepting responsibility, morality and consequences.

The student cast includes Lorna Stephens as Cinderella, Nolan Ellsworth as the Baker, Lucy Jakub as the Baker's Wife, Willem Hilliard as Jack and the Bean Stalk, Mackenzie Teft as Little Red Riding Hood, Aiden Ford as the witch, Finn McMahon-Alwine as the wolf, Peter Howell as Cinderella's Prince, Alex Szwez as Rapunzel's Prince and Drew Cleveland as the Narrator. The musical and vocal director is Deborah Reinke, set designer is Heather Ford and set construction is led by Jon Ellsworth and Henry Hilliard. The pit band members are Oliver Scott on piano, Steve Orlofsky on clarinet, Bill Schubeck on bass, Gavin Rogers on percussion, Sonja Hannington on flute and Alice Dillon on keyboard.

Please note, tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for students.
