People's Theater of Southern Indiana is proud to announce its inaugural production-Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's classic musical Into the Woods directed by Evansville native Matthew Herrmann with music direction by Laura Witte at the beautiful Lincoln Amphitheatre, located inside Lincoln State Park. Social distancing guidelines will be in effect.
Into the Woods intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault fairy tales exploring the consequences of the characters' wishes and quests. The main characters are taken from Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Cinderella, among others. The musical is tied together by a story involving a childless baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family, their interaction with a witch who has placed a curse on them, and their interaction with other storybook characters along the way.
Said director Herrmann, "In this time of uncertainty it is important to reflect back on the lessons we have learned and the truths we were taught. My vision for this remounted production is to combine the immense talent of the community with a beloved musical to create a memorable experience for all. We are all familiar with these fairy tales, but Into the Woods places the characters into a new world allowing the audience to look past the fantasy and discover their true meaning and morals."
This event is a facility rental by the People's Theater of Southern Indiana and is not an official Lincoln Amphitheatre event.
All seating is limited to less than one fifth of the venue's 1,500, fully covered, outdoor seating area. On site hand sanitizer provided courtesy of our friends at Monkey Hollow Winery & Distillery and all CDC rules and recommendations will be abided. Per the Governor's executive order, the use of face masks and face coverings will be required to enter the facility and when moving about the mezzanine area to concessions, restrooms, etc. Once in the seating area and social distance is in place, face coverings can be removed if the patron is comfortable doing so. While it is encouraged that all patrons bring their own face covering, we will have masks available to purchase.
