Embrace fairy tales in Grantham park
Embrace the surroundings of Wyndham Park for an exciting musical spectacle with a live band this week.
The Guildhall’s resident youth drama group D2E Youth Drama has taken on the musical 'Into the Woods', and if this Sondheim masterpiece isn’t magical enough – it’s outdoors!
Stephen Sondheim’s magical and musical intertwining of Grimm’s fairy tales follows the story of the Baker and his Wife, Cinderella, Little Red riding Hood, and many other fairy tale characters, each with their own wish.
The recognisable fairytale come to a head during this musical, as the audience see how each character gets their wish.
But will the consequences of their wishes haunt them in disastrous ways?
What happens after happily ever after?
From the people that brought you Evita, Sweeney Todd and Jekyll and Hyde the Musical, Into The Woods will also be directed by Jade Porter with musical and vocal direction by Elaine Bishop.
Jade said: "This is such a wonderful musical, that the young cast have done so much justice, and I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved with this performance. It is a perfect opportunity to combine the beautiful surroundings of Wyndham Park with live performance. Don’t miss out on this experience.”
Audience members are encouraged to bring chairs, picnics and drinks to enjoy this outdoor performance.
The shows runs from Thursday (July 4) till Saturday (July 6) at 7pm, along with a 2pm matinee on Saturday.
Tickets are £10/ £8 concessions and can be booked through the Guildhall Arts Centre box office, call 01476 406158 or visit www.guildhallartscentre.com
