The Forum Players present Into the Woods. With students from various different majors at Genesee Community College, the cast endeavors to bring this classic Sondheim tale to the stage. This will be the first musical staged at GCC in a number of years. Mounting a Sondheim show is no easy task; his emotional compositions paired with his lyrical cleverness has made Sondheim’s music some of the most difficult and rewarding pieces to learn.

Into the Woods follows classic fairytale characters on an adventure to fulfill their deepest wishes. The Baker and his Wife want more than anything to have a child, Cinderella desires to attend the King’s Festival, and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his Wife realize their wish cannot come true because of a Witch’s curse, they set out on a grand quest to break the spell. As their stories intertwine, they will all learn to be careful what they wish for. Even wishes don’t come without consequences.

Lapine and Sondheim focused on the characters’s individual quests in Act 1. The second act sees the characters dealing with the consequences of their actions and coming together as a community. One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods features exquisite music, whimsical settings, dark humor, and themes that will stay with the audience long after the curtain closes.

The cast includes Maya Webb as The Giant/The Narrator, Paul Daniszewski as The Baker, Ashlyn Puccio as The Baker’s Wife, Isabella Wheeler as Cinderella, Qasim Huzair as Jack, Grace Wheeler as Little Red Riding Hood, Jeriko Suzette Nemeth as The Witch, Marc Sapareto as Cinderella’s Prince / Wolf, Jasmine Wessel as Rapunzel, Chris Brown as Rapunzel’s Prince, Chris Bush as Jack’s Mother, Seth Coburn as the Mysterious Man, Cassidy Crawford as Cinderella’s Stepmother, Rosie Carioti-Darling and Sienna Korytkowski as Cinderella’s Stepsisters, Shakeem Walcott as Cinderella’s Father, Lauren Ruch as Cinderella’s Mother / Little Red’s Granny, and Aden Chua as The Steward.
