A baker and his wife enter the woods at the behest of a witch to fulfil four tasks and lift a curse.
Their journey is unveiled through the acting talents of students in Dover Bay Theatrix. The students present Into The Woods today (Dec. 8) to Saturday (Dec. 12) at 7 p.m. at Dover Bay Secondary school. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
The musical production includes a 31-piece student orchestra. To create more performance parts a chorus was made.
The choral parts were created by Grade 12 students Olivia Andrews, Kate Krynowsky and Hayley Farenholtz.
Dakota Farenholtz is this year’s lighting designer.
“Dakota is capable and she has created some extraordinary and beautiful scenes,” said Ward Norcutt, a teacher with Dover Bay Theatrix.
Michael Irving is the musical director and student teacher Brennan Conroy and Krynowsky are the vocal directors.
Tickets are $15 or $10 for students and are available at the school office or at the door.
