July 29….Moonlight Children’s Theatre Presents: “Into The Woods Jr.” - Friday and Saturday mornings this July, Lubbock Moonlight Musicals is thrilled to produce Moonlight Children’s Theatre’s second production, “Into The Woods Jr.”. This musical story revolves around a childless couple and the lengths they will traverse to have a family to weave together timeless fairy-tales of “Cinderella”, “Rapunzel”, “Little Red Riding Hood”, “Jack and the Beanstalk”, and others. At approximately one hour in length, the “Jr.” version of “Into the Woods” is designed for young audiences and is primarily composed of the first or “happy” act of the full version. With music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim (“West Side Story”, “Gypsy”, “A Little Night Music”, “Sweeny Todd”,….), the beautiful music will guide audiences through the story while reminding each guest that we may at times journey into the woods, and minding the future and past are necessary to achieve a happy ending. The cast for all Moonlight Children’s Theatre productions are trained and supplied through our audition-only youth performance program called Moonlight Directions, which is a youth ensemble geared towards community outreach in order to showcase the talent within the Lubbock Moonlight Musicals company and polish community youths in their performance skills. Tickets available through Select-A-Seat at 806-770-2000 or online at www.selectaseatlubbock.com. Moonlight Musicals Amphitheatre, 413 East Broadway; Gates open at 8:30 a.m.; show begins at 9 a.m.
