"Into The Woods," is a mixture of Cinderella, Little Red Ridinghood, Jack In The Bean Stalk, Rapunzel, and The Baker and The Baker's Wife. It was held at the Springfield Theatre on Lawrence Street, on the eighth day of the tenth month of the year 2000. The plays were not separated in their own section the whole time. They mixed them all together most of the time. It was very interesting and entertaining. This musical was set in the woods (the whole time). Every skit was just like the original ones, but they put a little twist to them to make them funnier.
When I went, I had gotten there just in time. There were three women there that had an extra ticket, and to top it off their tickets/seats were in the front row center. So I had a very good view. As I sat down, I noticed on the stage one of the actors. He was Jack for "Jack in the Bean Stalk." Jack is one of the teachers at Ursuline Academy, Dale Mason. He was not my teacher, but I did know him. I thought that that was pretty cool.
I liked everything about the musical "Into The Woods." It was not even that long. It was only an hour and a half. It was funny and entertaining. The actors/actresses were very much into the play. They all sang and danced, and they looked like they were having fun at what they were doing. That makes a show better to watch. I would like to see it again, only if I didn't have to pay $9 for it. I would even recommend a friend to go and see it. There was nothing that I did not like about the musical. The whole thing was just wonderful.
When you go to the theatre to see a play, musical, symphony, orchestra, etc.

Robert's Frosty Woods - Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening Essay

- Robert's Frosty Woods The mood of Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening" is artfully set by saying "the only other sound's the sweep / of easy wind and downy flake" (11-12). These lines convey they beautiful tranquillity of solitude. Many critics argue that the dark woods of the poem symbolize death. It is equally as valid to say that the poet is describing the joy experiencing a peaceful moment to him; the relaxing mood of the poem as well as the realization that the traveler must move on provide evidence contrary to the interpretation that the woods symbolize death....   [tags: Stopping Woods Snowy Evening]

Contrasts in Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening Essay

- Contrasts in 'Stopping by Woods' The duality of the narrator's response to the woods is caught in the contrast between the relaxed, conversational idiom of the first three lines (note the gentle emphasis given to ‘think', the briskly colloquial ‘though') and the dream-like descriptive detail and hypnotic verbal music ('watch . . . woods', 'his . . . fill . . . with') of the last. Clearing and wilderness, law and freedom, civilization and nature, fact and dream: these oppositions reverberate throughout the poem....   [tags: Stopping Woods Snowy Evening]

you expect to get the same thing out of it, or the same plot around the story. This one was different, it was about four different stories all put together into one musical. I liked how they mixed them together so you can get a variety.
In the programs they have the cast members and a brief summary about where they went to school, what they acted in, etc. That's good because then you can see what kind of background they have in acting. It also has future shows in it for the Springfield Theatre and the Sangamon State Auditorium.
I really liked this musical "Into The Woods." I would go and see it again. It's cute, funny, entertaining, and it's great to watch. I'm glad that I chose this musical for my Music Appreciation class report.
