Theatre will present a musical fairytale

The Black Hills State University theater department will present “Into the Woods” by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine in Woodburn Auditorium Feb. 24-26 at 8 p.m., and a Feb. 27 matinee at 2:30 p.m.

This masterful musical is a seamless fusion of fairytales that strikes at the child's heart within us all. A baker and his wife journey into the woods in search of a cow, a red cape, a pair of golden slippers and some magic beans – all necessary to lift the curse that has left them childless. They meet up with a beguiling cast of characters who will leave you laughing out loud, fighting back tears and, ultimately, transformed by the whole experience. “Into the Woods” is a musical lover's delight from start to finish.

The cast members are: Tim Bessette, Spearfish, as narrator; Kristine Schaffer, Custer, as Cinderella; Guy Bruha, Baker, Mont., as Jack; Taffy Anderson, Belle Fourche, as Jack's mother; Rusty Luebchow, Spearfish, as the baker; Delorise Davis, Spearfish, as the baker's wife; Crystal Bleu Muglia, Spearfish, as Cinderella's stepmother; Sonja Olson, Colton,
