Show Description:

Esteemed Composer Stephen Sondheim takes everyone's favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless, yet relevant, piece... and a rare modern classic. The Tony Award-winning book and score are both enchanting and touching.

The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone's wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.

This Broadway classic from Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine invites you into the world of some of your favorite fairytales to tell a new story. It is both comedy and cautionary tale full of a colorful cast of characters!

The Happy Ending Lyric Players hope to see you in the woods. Just be sure to watch out for wolves, they always seem nice…but nice is different than good!
