Into The Woods at Lake Placid Center for the Arts

by Diane Chase (as seen in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise) Fairytales aren’t always for very young children and The Community Theatre Players are here to remind us in this year’s spring musical,  Into The Woods . Held at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts,  Into The Woods  is not the sugarcoated bedtime fairytale but a story set to music that displays how our choices affects everyone around us.   The music by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine intertwines various fairy tale stories such as Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, the Baker and His Wife, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White and Sleeping Beauty. The play twists those familiar tales together as the characters journey through the woods to achieve their fairy tale ending. But, hold everything. That is only Act I.
