Published 5:07 pm Saturday, April 29, 2017

Students from Rutherford, Polk and Henderson Counties have a hit on their hands. Tickets are going fast for the Lake Lure Classical Academy Theatre Department’s production of “Into the Woods, Jr.” The production is being staged at the Mill Spring Agricultural Center Auditorium off of Hwy. 9 in Mill Spring for three performances: Friday, May 5 at 7:30 p.m. and on Saturday, May 6 at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Doors open one hour before each show.

Be careful what you wish for! Watch fairy tales come to life in this kid-friendly adaptation of the original Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine. The one-hour show centers on 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 curse and wind up changed forever. “Into the Woods, Jr.” is a feast for eyes and the ears.

Tickets can be picked up or ordered from Lake Lure Classical Academy or purchased at the door if the show isn’t sold out. Proceeds from the show help fund future Lake Lure Classical Academy Theatre Department productions.
