A host of Broadway talent is featured in North Carolina Theatre's production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods, which is presented Oct. 20-25 at the Raleigh Memorial Auditorium in the Duke Energy Center for the Performing Arts.

James Brennan directs and choreographs.

Jacquelyn Piro Donovan heads the cast as the Witch with Laurel Harris as the Baker’s Wife, Jennifer Cody as Little Red Riding Hood, Jamison Stern as the Baker, Jeremy Morse as Jack, Dirk Lumbard as Narrator/Mysterious Man, Abby Church as Cinderella and Nathaniel Hackmann as Cinderella’s Prince/Wolf.

They are joined by Jeff Aguiar (Steward), Ashley Adamek (Stepsister), Pauline Cobrda (Jack’s Mother), Kinsland Howell (Stepsister), Christine Hunter (The Stepmother), Lisa Jolley (Cinderella’s Mother/Granny/Giant), Emily Leonard (Rapunzel), Ben Michael (Rapunzel’s Prince), Lauren Satterwhite (Sleeping Beauty/Milky White) and Emily Thomas (Snow White/Milky White).

Into the Woods, according to the North Carolina venue, "tells a story of a childless baker and his wife who endeavor to lift their family curse by journeying into the woods, where they encounter Rapunzel (and her witchly 'mother'), Cinderella, Jack (of Beanstalk fame), Little Red Riding Hood and other classic fairy tale characters, and they all must learn the responsibility that comes with getting what you want." “We are very excited about the blend of top-notch Broadway talent and returning North Carolina Theatre veterans we were able to assemble for this production of Sondheim's epic fairy tale musical,” said producer Carolee Baxter in an earlier statement. “Audiences will be awed by the powerful yet believable characters beautifully brought to life by this fabulous cast and find that they too will be transported to a land far, far away.”

The show is under the musical direction of Edward G. “Eddy” Robinson.
