2013 Season Announcement

INTO THE WOODS

May 31st –  June 29th, 2013
The Eureka Theatre (Jackson/Battery), San Francisco
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; Book by James Lapine
Directed by Eliza Leoni

Into the Woods humorously combines a number of classic fairy tales into one hilarious, touching, over-arching narrative. A baker and his wife are assigned a number of tasks by a nearby witch; only after completing these duties will they be able to bear children. During their quest to fulfill the witches’ demands, they encounter Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and numerous other fairy tale figures. The traditional stories are parodied and altered at will, yet the original fairy tales’ sense of wonder and, at times, darkness remains intact. The score, winner of Broadway’s Tony Award, includes such songs as Children Will Listen, Giants in the Sky and No One Is Alone.

It’s bloody. It’s creepy. It’s CARRIE THE MUSICAL! Based on Stephen King’s best-selling novel, Carrie The Musical hasn’t been seen much since its legendary 1988 Broadway production. Now, the show’s original authors have reworked and fully re-imagined this gripping tale. And Ray of Light Theatre is thrilled to present the West Coast Premiere next fall at The Victoria Theatre! Set today, in the small town of Chamberlain, Maine, Carrie White is a misfit. At school, she’s an outcast who’s bullied by the popular crowd yet virtually invisible to everyone else. At home, she’s at the mercy of her loving yet cruelly over-protective mother. But Carrie’s just discovered she’s got a special power. And if pushed too far, she’s not afraid to use it…
