The theatre department at Concordia presented “Into the Woods,” a musical production depicting troubled fairy tale creatures, based on the works of the Brothers Grimm. The musical was performed during the first two weekends of November in the Weller Hall Auditorium.

“Into the Woods,” written by James Lapine, with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, follows the stories of several fairy tale creatures including Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Jack from “Jack and the Beanstock” and Rapunzel.
