Description:

The casting director is looking for actors/singers for the "Into the Woods" Show. Please see the details below. About the project: A cow as white as milk. Cape as red as blood. Hair as yellow as corn. Slipper as pure as gold. These are the enchanted ingredients that make Stephen Sondheim’s fractured fairytale. A childless baker and his wife set out to lift the Witch’s curse by journeying into the woods and encounter Jack with his beanstalk, Cinderella with her prince, Rapunzel with her tower, and Little Red Riding Hood with her wolf.
