May 5-8
Sorg Opera House [Middletown]

Directed by Aaron Washington

Cast: Christopher Howie as Narrator, Benjamin Jones as Baker, Audree Terry & Sophie Caton as Baker’s Wife, Abriella Ruby & Ella Sands as Cinderella, Lily Meyers as Jack, Jillian Edwards as Jack’s Mother, Addison Haines & Mia Zink as Little Red Riding Hood, Brooke Partin & Max Fox as Witch, Brielle Storer & Franny Bell as Rapunzel/Cinderella’s Mother, Gavin Poronsky as Repunzel’s Prince, Davis Byrd as Cinderella’s Prince/Wolf, Greta Moore as Cinderella’s Stepmother, Savannah Basinger as Florinda, Kaia Woo as Lucinda, Aaron Callahan as Mysterious Man, Blake Meyerhofer as Cinderella’s Father, Aiden Thompson as Steward & Catherine Shannon as Granny/Giant

“Be careful what you wish for” seems to be the ongoing theme in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Brothers Grimm inspired musical, Into the Woods. The story follows The Baker and his wife who wish to have a child, Cinderella who wishes to go the King’s Festival, and Jack who wishes his cow would give some milk. When the Baker and his wife are visited by the neighborhood witch, who reveals to them that she placed a curse on their family, the two set off on a journey into the woods to reverse the curse. Also in the woods, we meet Little Red, who is trying to visit her grandmother, the Wolf who loves tasty little girls, the Witch’s daughter Rapunzel, and the Princes chasing after their loves. Everyone gets their wish and seemingly lives happily ever after. Until Jack’s beanstalk brings them a visit from an angry Giant and we see how the consequences of their actions haunt them in disastrous ways. The community must come together to save each other and their kingdom, but sacrifices must be made.

The Sisters of Perpetual Sewing miss the excitement of the old days when they were saving convents and reuniting long-lost families. So when they learn that the orphanage where Paul and Kate grew up is in peril, they can’t wait to come to the rescue. Everyone pitches in to mount a play to raise money, but it’s no easy feat when Kate’s expecting any day, Sally’s hiding from stage-fright-stricken Paul after another flight from the altar, Mother Superior’s acting is unexpectedly narcoleptic, and the sisters’ award-winning wine keeps getting switched with the grape juice.

Xenia Area Community Theatre

Sorg Theater [Middletown]

Directed by Richard Lee Waldeck
Produced by Mike Taint

A fast paced comedy/farce about a young vicar’s wife who is trying to fit into a small, tightly-knit town. Set in the background of World War II, things go awry when a pompous church matron comes calling unannounced and a male friend from the vicar’s wife’s past comes to visit. The bishop (the wife’s uncle) shows up early, and an escaped Russian convict hides in the house. Throw in another vicar and a witty maid, who is a little off, and you have a hilarious comedy.
