FRANKLIN — Into the Woods, a Tony award-winning musical comedy, is on stage for a final weekend at the Smoky Mountain Center for Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m. July 16-17.
The plot follows a couple 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 couple learns they cannot have a child because of a secret in his family’s past, the two set off on a journey to find a resolution.
Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous and hilarious results. What begins a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility, the stories we tell our children and sometimes the things we most wish for are not always what will result in happily-ever-after.
Presented by the Overlook Theatre Company. A full two-act production.
Tickets are $13 for students and $17 for adults. For tickets or more info, click here.
