Saint Martin’s Theater and Music Departments Present ‘Into the Woods’


Submitted by Saint Martin’s University

into the woods“Witches can be right/Giants can be good/You decide what’s right/You decide what’s good.”

These and other intriguing lyrics by Stephen Sondheim can be heard beginning April 5 when the Saint Martin’s University theatre and music departments present the Tony Award-winning “Into the Woods,” the Broadway epic in which everyone’s favorite fairytale characters are brought together for a timeless but relevant piece of American musical theater.

With book by James Lapine, this riff on the creations of the Brothers Grimm follows a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival “more than anything;” and Jack, who wishes his cow, Milky White, would, well, give milk. When the baker and his wife learn they cannot have a child because of a witch’s curse, the couple sets off on a journey to break the spell.  Everyone’s wish is granted. But everyone learns to be careful what they wish for when the often disastrous consequences of their actions return to haunt them later.

Performances will run April 5 – 6, and April 10 – 12 at the State Theater, 204 4th Avenue E, in downtown Olympia. Tickets at the door are $12 for general admission, and $7 for students, seniors and military personnel. Admission April 9 is Pay-What-You-Will. Advance Tickets can be purchased online at
