Partners in the Woods

Salina Community Theatre and Kansas Wesleyan University are teaming up to bring “Into The Woods” to the stage.

“This is the first one in what we hope is going to be a long line of productions and partnership with Kansas Wesleyan,” said Michael Spicer, Executive Director of SCT.

Spicer joined in on the KSAL Morning News Thursday with a look at a story that has familiar characters – like Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella – facing new circumstances.

Spicer says the musical tale explores moral lessons learned and the cost of consequences to your actions.

“You stole that money from the Giant and you chopped down the the beanstalk and he was killed,” Spicer quipped.

“What happens if another beanstalk happens to grow and his wife comes looking for you Jack?”

The cast is made up of KWU students, while the venue and technical crew is provided by Salina Community Theatre.

Spicer added, “I have to give all props to Ken Hakoda and Karen Brassea because they have really help prepare their students to come over and do this.”

Tickets are on sale for “Into The Woods” which runs at SCT Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays beginning April 8th through April 24th.
