MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – INTO THE WOODS is set to open Friday, October 13, at The Center for the Arts.

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.


The story follows 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 that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results. The community must come together to save each other and their kingdom, but sacrifices must be made.

Into the Woods is directed by Adam and Keri Boe, rated PG, and presented by Bridgestone.

Tickets are currently on sale at, by calling 615-904-ARTS (2787), or in person at the Center for the Arts Box Office, 110 West College Street, in downtown Murfreesboro.
