Director's Thoughts on Into The Woods
Into The Woods takes well-known folk and fairy tale characters, and in many ways returns them back to their original intentions. These stories evolved as tools to help people navigate their way through the human experience, and these stories have retained their relevance because the human experience remains the same across time and culture.
With this production I hope to highlight the connection we, as residents of Skagit County and beyond, in 2018, have to the characters, and to our fellow human beings. We can still learn from these stories, and see ourselves in these characters. Indeed, just as the song proclaims, we are not alone. The path has been illuminated by the generations who have gone before us, and we will do the same for those who come after.
- Glynna Goff, Director
