ESHS Drama Department presents Into the Woods, Jr. Feb. 9-10

Tuesday, January 30, 2018

The Eureka Springs High School Drama Department will host a performance of Into the Woods, Jr. at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 9, and Saturday, Feb. 10, at the Eureka Springs High School Auditorium.

Into the Woods, Jr. features Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch in a lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables. The musical centers on a baker and his wife, 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 baker and his wife learn they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.

​With unforgettable roles, Into the Woods, Jr. showcases an ensemble of talented singers and actors. Playing the baker and his wife are Griff Hatch and Ashlynn Lockhart.  Rachel Adams plays Cinderella and Makenzie Meyer portrays Little Red Riding Hood. Celia Stodden and Alexis Jayroe play Jack and his mother. Rapunzel and her dashing prince are portrayed by Savannah Reeves and Sam Gay.  Of course, we can’t forget Cinderella’s prince, Austin Moloney. And so good at being bad are our witch, Elizabeth Loudermilk, and wolf, Julian Moehr. Twenty more supporting cast and crew join these to present the show.

Make Saturday a special Valentine night with a meal and musical by supporting the ESHS FFA’s Spaghetti Dinner at 6 p.m. in the high school cafeteria. The $5 meal includes spaghetti, salad, dessert and drink. Tickets to the show will cost $10 for adults and $5 for student. No advance ticket purchase is necessary, and Eureka Springs School District students are admitted free.
