The Department of Theater Arts at the University of the Island presents the musical “Into the Woods”

MOSCOW, Idaho — April 14, 2022 — The University of Idaho Department of Theater Arts presents Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical “Into the Woods” at 7:30 p.m. April 29, 30, and May 7; and 2:30 p.m. April, 1 and 2 May, at the Hartung Theatre, 625 Stadium Drive, Moscow. Admission is free for U of I students and $10-$22 for the public. Tickets are available online at or at the door. Doors open one hour before the show.

A Tony Award-winning modern musical masterpiece from Sondheim and James Lapine, “Into the Woods” features a cast of classic fairy tale characters whose worlds intertwine. Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, the baker, his wife and a giant are all on a quest to find their “happiness forever”. With a moving score, this musical adventure is a powerful reflection on life’s many twists and turns. Wishes will be granted, but at what cost?

“Into the Woods” is directed by U of I performance professor David Lee-Painter and features more than 30 U of I students in the cast and crew, including senior Hannah Verdi of Hayden, who received the National Kennedy Center American Musical Theater Fellowship from the College Theater Festival in June 2021.
