City Circle Presents Into the Woods April 24-May 3

Coralville - Venture back Into the Woods as City Circle Acting Company of Coralville presents the Tony Award-winning musical classic by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, April 24-May 3 at the Coralville Center for the Performing Arts.

Follow a baker and his wife as they struggle to meet the demands of a vengeful witch so that they may have their hearts’ desire—a child of their own. On their journey in and out of the woods, they meet a woman fleeing a ball, a girl with extraordinary hair, a cow-sick boy, a sweet-loving granddaughter, a couple of princes, and at least one giant.

"I remember listening to the cassette tape of the original cast in 1987 before ever seeing the show on stage. I imagined what the show would look like--how the stories would be told in the theater. I'm thrilled to be able to work with this all-star cast to bring this vision finally to life,” says director Chris Okiishi. “Even though these are Fairy Tale characters and the stories are firmly based in the Brothers Grimm, I think our audiences will relate in a very real way to the characters' triumphs and struggles. And who hasn't wondered what happens after 'Happily Ever After'?"

Tickets are $12-$27 and can be purchased online or by calling 319-248-9370 or in person at the CCPA box office at 1301 5th Street and at the Coralville Recreation Center at 1506 8th Street.
