Nazareth Academy show: Oct. 27-30
Stephen Sondheim’s “Into the Woods”
As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch, a baker and his wife are childless. Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch's beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn, a blood-red cape, and a slipper of gold. During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a wish.
Current Holy Ghost Prep students will play the following roles in next month's Nazareth Academy musical.
Charles Lawall - Baker
Noah Tapp - Jack
Garrison Moore - Cinderella's Prince
Albert Wilson - The Mysterious Man
Matthew Davis - Narrator
Jeff DiFrancisco - Rapunzel’s Prince
Adam Gasiewski - The Wolf
Stefano Arnone - The Steward
James Nycz - Townsperson
Christian Cymbalski - Townsperson
Dean Giuliano - Townsperson
Please make plans to see the Nazareth Academy show!
