The Harvey Player’s presented Stephen Sondheim’s Into the Woods on Jan 18, 19 and 20 at 7:00 p.m with a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee.

“Personally I think they did a wonderful job,” head director Celeste Schneider said. “I am so proud of them, they were top notch.”

Auditions for the musical took place in September, with rehearsals beginning in October. The musical was double cast, with the Viper and Vandy cast each performing two shows.

“I felt really confident going into it, the cast had worked so hard,” Schneider said. “Normally tech week would have been really scary, but we were really ready.”

Into the Woods is a traditionally difficult musical to put on, with difficult aspects such as run time, cues, music and set design.

“One of our biggest hardships was taking on the challenge of performing one of the most difficult musicals ever,” Schneider said. “The music was very difficult especially with a live orchestra.”

The roles in the musical presented challenges to the actors, from age differences to chemistry on stage.

“The most demanding part about playing Jack was that it is somewhat difficult to portray a character who is twenty-three years old physically, but mentally he’s much younger,” junior Greyson Weedman said. “I knew that as a cast, we were all more than prepared for the show.”

The casts of Into the Woods performed four shows over the weekend, including two sold out shows.

“I felt confident that the show would come together into something great,” junior Francis Kim said. “There are always nerves during show week but the adrenaline of an audience enhances the show.”
