Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Kristianne Kurner
Eleven years ago, New Village Arts produced its first musical. Now, in the midst of our 20th season, NVA partners with Oceanside Theatre Company to return to the musical that started it all. INTO THE WOODS brings well-known fairytale characters to musical life. Interwoven through their tales is the story of a baker and his wife, whose longing for a child is thwarted by a mischievous witch. Stephen Sondheim’s songs, seamlessly melded to James Lapine’s text, are perfect expressions of the complications of living in modern society and the difficult choices we encounter on the paths of our lives. INTO THE WOODS will transform the Oceanside Theatre Company’s stage into a magic land where almost anything can (and does) happen.
COVID SAFETY PROTOCOL
Audience safety is our primary concern. Throughout this season all patrons need to have a photo ID and either their physical CDC issued vaccination card or a picture of their vaccination card. There must be at least 14 days elapsed from the date of their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines and after the first dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine.
Any unvaccinated person must present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result taken within 72 hours of the performance date. Masks are required for everyone, regardless of vaccination status, while indoors in the lobby and during the performance.
Photo ID’s and COVID vaccination cards will be checked starting one hour prior to curtain outside the lobby doors on Coast Highway
