St George’s Preparatory School brings award-winning musical, Into the Woods JUNIOR.

Be careful what you wish for as St George’s Preparatory School brings Stephen Sondheim’s and James Lapine’s cockeyed fairytale to life in this adaptation of their groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning musical -  Into the Woods JUNIOR. 

The show, consisting of approximately 100 pupils, runs from Wednesday 19th September to Friday 21st September. Performances take place at 11h30 and 18h00 daily.

The morning performances are geared towards accommodating large groups from our local and surrounding primary schools. The show will take place in the school’s Jan Immelman hall and features all of your favorite characters – Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk) and the Witch in this lyrically rich retelling of classic Brothers Grimm fables.

The musical centers on a baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch's curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.

The show boasts an award winning production team, with Annaline Stiglingh as Director, Junene du Toit as Musical Director, Courtney Pearse as Choreographer, and Jenny Maltby seeing to the set.

The show costs R50 per ticket and R20 for school block bookings (10 or more tickets). Tickets can be obtained by contacting Ms Gillian Pattison during school hours on 041 585 4825 or email prep@stgeorges.co.za
