Byron goes Into the Woods

By David Richards

The Byron Drama Department is finalizing rehearsals for "Into the Woods," the Tony-winning Broadway Musical that made its debut starring actress Bernadette Peters in 1987.

The production, featuring music by Stephen Sondheim and a story by James Lapine, is a modern take on the Brothers Grimm fairytales.

In 2014, the story received newfound popularity as a motion picture starring Meryl Streep.

Byron's version of "Into the Woods" runs March 15-17 at 7 p.m. each night at the Byron Middle School Auditorium.

Last year, Byron Drama selected "Spamalot," for its spring musical, a Monty Python product about King Arthur that featured a giant wooden rabbit, a rubber chicken, chain mail, feather boas, Laker girls and some over the top musical numbers.

Last fall, the drama students produced its version of Arthur Miller's "The Crucible," about the Salem witch trials.

Adding to the ambience of that production, in addition to its vintage set and costumes, was the creak of a rope, spooky red lights and creepy music box sounds that even chimed through the intermission.
