PLATTSBURGH - Adirondack Regional Theatre will present a production of "Into the Woods" beginning Friday, July 16, at Clinton Community College, 136 Clinton Point Drive.
The Tony Award-winning story, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, fractures the tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and the ever-present Wolf and Witch to bring new depth to characters. What begins a lively irreverent fantasy in the style of "The Princess Bride" becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
Jackie Robertin will serve as director while Karin Ryan will serve as music director.
Show times for Into the Woods are 7 p.m. July 16 and Saturday, July 17, and 3 p.m. Sunday, July 18, and Sunday, July 25. Admission is $10, with limited tickets available. Tickets may be purchased at the door and the customer service desk of Champlain Centre, 60 Smithfield Blvd.
Into the Woods is produced with public funds from the New York State Council On The Arts administered locally by the North Country Cultural Center for the Arts. The presenting sponsor is CVPH Medical Center and the host of the event is Clinton Community College.
