Now on Our Main Stage:

Stephen Sondheim’s

Into The Woods

Running now through November 18

The Ritz Theatre Co. closes our thirty-third year with a Stephen Sondheim classic, Into the Woods. Little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf, Cinderella, and the Witch return for a triumphant encore!

“We are delighted to be bringing Into the Woods to our Main Stage again,” says Bruce Curless, Ritz Theatre Producing Artistic Director. “We had a very successful run in the past, now we look forward to bringing this show to our current audiences.

Our costumer for this show AJ Garcia has also worked with us in the past, then moved to Florida where he established his costume business East Coast Theatricals. We are very fortunate to be working with AJ again!”

Directed by Craig Hutchings

Craig notes: “I am continually excited and inspired by the group of performers and artists who make up our cast of Into the Woods. Bringing together a musical this complex requires a cast filled with high caliber performers, and equally as talented musicians! We here at The Ritz are fortunate to have both. Yes the music is complex, intricate and often painfully specific, but our music director Collin Maier is very much up to the task of teaching, layering and mastering this difficult score. While the characters and story may seem simple on their face, they are all filled with depth and background. When you combine those elements, you end up with the Sondheim masterpiece that is Into the Woods.

And my special thanks go to Josh Bessinger who plays the Baker. He's also the driving force behind the artistic vision for the set, and his artistic skill has been invaluable. I know you will love his performance as the Baker, but you should also know that he was responsible for far more than his performance.”
