The Division Avenue High School music department presented Into the Woods, a magical adventure with a moral and political point of view by James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim, for three stellar performances. Director Ryan Nolin and vocal director Lisa Levenberg directed the two-act play, and the orchestra, under the direction of conductor Michael Bastone, provided musical accompaniment.
Narrator Matthew Brzezinski led the audience on a journey through the dark side of popular fairytales including “Cinderella” (Dimitra Tzanis), “Little Red Riding Hood” (Brianna Chua), “Jack and the Bean Stalk” (Brendan Skillman), “Rapunzel” (Heather Robertson),
“Snow White” (Lani Volino) and “Sleeping Beauty” (Trish Mollo), with a 35-member cast and crew that explored communal responsibility, growing pains and moral responsibility. The musical’s plot was tied together by an original tale that involves a childless baker (John Genzale) and his wife’s (Kara Burke) wishes to have a child, a witch (Victoria Baquet) who places a curse on them and the interaction of the fairytale characters. Principal Joan Lorelli even lent her artistic talents, in her role as the giant.
