Urbana, IL (WCIA)– Everyone’s favorite storybook characters are coming to life in one Tony-award winning musical this summer. “Into The Woods” will open at the Urbana Park District later this month.
The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the spell. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

Thursday, July 25: 7pm
