Preview: ‘Into the Woods’ at Sacramento Theatre Company
In a world where shoes are lost and beanstalks get way too big, a shoe is lost and a beanstalk gets way too big. It’s the world of Into the Woods, the hit Stephen Sondheim musical that weaves together popular fairy tales with showstopping tunes. This weekend only, see it performed by the students from STC School of the Arts, Young Professionals Conservatory. There’s more than just shoes and beans—there’s drama, romance, heroism. Things also get pretty dark in the second act, figuratively and probably literally, depending on the stage lighting situation.
