plot summary: When a baker and his wife learn they've been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell: swindling, lying to and stealing from Cinderella, Little Red, Rapunzel, Jack and other fairy tale characters. Everyone's wish is granted at the end of Act One, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later, with disastrous results. What begins a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children.
what to bring: Photo and resume. One memorized monologue no longer than one minute. A song from a musical (preferably by Sondheim) with sheet music for accompanist. A song from INTO THE WOODS may be used. An accompanist will be provided.
