The stories of fairy tale characters created by the Brothers Grimm are intertwined in the musical fantasy “Into the Woods,” which opens this week at UCF.

Directed by UCF Associate Professor and Coordinator of Graduate Acting Kate Ingram, “Into the Woods” tells the stories of characters such as Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella while offering life lessons for audiences of all ages.

The award-winning musical appeared on Broadway, and features music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and a book by James Lapine.

Performances of “Into the Woods” will be Thursdays through Sundays from March 24 to April 3 on the UCF Theatre’s Main Stage. All shows begin at 8 p.m., except for Sunday matinees, which will start at 2 p.m.
