The Tony award winning musical fairy tale with a twist...or two. In Stephen Sondheim’s unconventional mash-up of iconic fairy tales, a baker and his wife set out to reverse a witch's curse in the hope of having a child. The couple’s journey leads them into the woods, where they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and his Beanstalk, a circumspect Cinderella, a remote Rapunzel, and two opportunistic Princes. Sondheim's score along with James Lapine's book awaken a world where you must learn to be careful what you wish for and that indeed, witches may be right. Suitable for ages 8 and up. Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and Book by James Lapine Directed & Choreographed by Maura Malloy Musical Direction by Stephen Murphy . Performed on outdoor stages at Scranton's historic Iron Furnaces - built in 1848! This unique venue not only offers an exciting theatrical experience, but also the peace of mind that comes with mindful, socially distanced, outdoor entertainment. 2021 is the 10th Anniversary Season for The Scranton Shakespeare Festival.
