Into the Woods.


In 2017, third year students from AUB’s BA (Hons) ActingCostume and Performance Design and Make-Up for Media Performance courses worked together with Kokoro to bring the production to the stage. This was the fifth year that undergraduate students from these courses have partnered with Kokoro on a stage production.

Inspired by Brothers Grimm stories, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s award-winning musical brings to life the characters that we know and love, including Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Rapunzel.

All of these characters must venture into the woods to achieve their greatest desires. The musical explores just how far these characters will go to do so and the consequences of getting your heart’s desire. The play asks the question: what happens after ‘happily ever after’?
