Classics with a twist

Award-winning Musical Theatre Salisbury will be performing Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim at Salisbury Playhouse from 3 to 8 July. The musical is a Tony Award winner and the film starring Meryl Streep, James Corden, Emily Blunt and Johnny Depp received Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominations.

Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales and follows the classic stories of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel – all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them so that they will remain childless.

Evening performances start at 7.30 and the Saturday matinée at 2.15. Tickets are available from the Salisbury Playhouse Box Office on 01722 320 333, or online at
