'A ravishing explosion of color and melody and magic and laughter. Into The Woods makes a glorious case for what a musical can be. An elixir of delight. The audiences roar with laughter.'
– Time Magazine

'Finally there’s hope for the Broadway musical.' - USA Today

Stephen Sondheim’s moving musical based on James Lapine’s mesmerising fairy tale will receive an Asian twist this April. The Dream Academy, one of Singapore’s foremost theatre production companies, will stage this Tony-winning musical starring some of the best-known local thespians. Glen Goei directs an ensemble cast featuring the likes of Selena Tan, Adrian Pang, Sebastian Tan, Emma Yong and Denise Tan, as well as well-known regional international musical theatre stars, Sheila Francisco and RJ Rosales.

The draw of the musical lies not just in the moral of the tale, but also in its outstanding music and lyrics. And what’s more, this Singaporean production features a host of young, talented extras who will infuse the musical with a youthful energy and a distinctly Asian flavour.

‘Into the Woods’ is an award-winning Broadway musical about growing up, parent-child relationships, marriage, morality and community. Profound in its simplicity and full of exciting, unexpected twists, it is a magical musical treat that will enchant the child and move the adult.
