The San Mateo High School Musical Theater Department proudly presents:

Into The Woods

Into The Woods logo

If Humpty Dumpty were the Tales of the Brothers Grimm, this might be what the king's horses and king's minstrels would have reassembled- a musical mosaic of fractured fairy tales! Catch the stories of Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, The Baker and His Wife, a Witch and Cinderella (with cameos by Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and others), all delightfully rolled into one hilarious, fast paced, and thought-provoking musical by Stephen Sondheim.

Presented for one weekend only

May 4-7, 2006:
Thurs-Sat at 8 PM
Sun at 2:00 PM  

At the San Mateo Performing Arts Center
600 N Delaware St, San Mateo
