Centennial High students head off ‘Into the Woods’

If you missed your chance to see this phenomenal show recently at the local Ovation Theatre, or if you just want to see it again, head over to Centennial High School as the drama department presents the very popular musical "Into the Woods" this weekend.

"Into the Woods" draws plotlines and characters from a variety of Brothers Grimm fairy tales, such as Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Jack and the Beanstalk. The show’s writers, James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, were drawn by the true morals of the main characters of these stories — and by adding additional characters like the Baker and his Wife, they were able to weave these tales about greed, dishonesty, faith and love into one new story about what it means to be grateful for what you have, and also to be careful what you wish for.

Alicia Hammons has been an English teacher and theater director at Centennial High School for four years. Previously, she worked 11 years at Fruitvale Junior High, teaching English, drama and journalism.
