Childhood nostalgia with a twist, the Tony Award-winning musical Into the Woods is a mix of all things fantasy. Don’t be fooled by the innocent narratives that drive this show; it’s a complicated story woven with tragedy and dark humor. Spokane Valley Summer Theater is performing the production as its summer main stage show, running for three weeks beginning this Friday. Whether you need a fairytale fix or simply want to support local theater arts, this show has a narrative with a steady stream of classic genre tropes and perhaps a few unexpected twists: Princesses, magic beans, sex, death — you name it.
July 13-29; Thu-Sun at 7:30 pm, Sun at 2 pm • $20-$38 • Central Valley High School Performing Arts Center • 821 S. Sullivan Rd. • svsummertheatre.com
