New Shoreline Theatre Company brings free outdoor performances of "Into The Woods" to City Hall in August

Friday, August 1, 2014

The new Aurora Theatre Company will bring its inaugural production of the Stephen Sondheim-James Lapine award-winning musical Into The Woods to Shoreline City Hall for six free, outdoor performances:
  • August 8-9, 15-16 and 22-23, Friday and Saturday evenings at 8:00pm. 

Into The Woods is a magical retelling of your favorite Grimm’s Fairy Tales characters and their search for “Happily Ever After.” What begins as an irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories that we tell our children.

Directed by Scott Charles Francis, with Musical Direction by Avery Groenmann and Brandon Peck, the cast features Rachel Brinn, Justin Johns, Andrew Larson, Candace Larson, Matthew Steven Lawrence, Patrick J. Lucey-Conklin, Sarah McGrath, Adam Minton, Chelsea Moe and Katherine Poor. This Into The Woods will be a departure from most productions: there will be only 10 actors taking on all the roles, with two musicians. 

The City of Shoreline, Shoreline Community College, Charlie’s Produce and Il Terrazzo Carmine / Intermezzo Carmine, have joined together with Aurora Theatre Company to present the six performances with no charge to the public. Reservations are FREE and can be made online 

Director Scott Francis has been working closely with Shoreline’s Economic Development Program Manager, Dan Eernissee, to work out all the details of this production in the outdoor plaza amphitheater at Shoreline City Hall – it is a first for both Shoreline and Aurora Theatre Company. Into The Woods is delighted to be a featured event at Celebrate Shoreline.

Patrons are invited to come as early as 6:00pm and bring blankets, jackets and a picnic supper and be ready to enjoy this “theatre under the stars” production. There will also be food carts at some performances where patrons can purchase meals and/or desserts, including Sweet Wheels and Wheely Cool Treats. 
Mark your calendars and get ready to enjoy a magical theatrical experience under the stars!
