Last fall we did two short productions. I already posted the photos for Disney's Aladdin Jr. (link here) and am finally getting around to posting photos of the other play we did, Into the Woods Jr.
It's sort of a jumble of fairy tales--Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Rapunzel, mixed with the story of a Baker and his wife who want to have a child. It's tied together by a narrator, whom I envisioned as sort of a college professor type.
The design of this show wasn't as flashy as Aladdin--intentionally so. Much darker, more subdued--but also more textured and nuanced. I really loved the way it all turned out. As always, photos are posted with parental permission.
Little Red Riding Hood visits the Baker and his wife, looking for food to take to her grandmother.
The witch from next door visits the Baker and his wife and tells them what they'll need to do to have a child. It will involve her making a potion with the following ingredients: a cape as red as blood, a cow as white as milk, a slipper as pure as gold, and hair as yellow as corn. They go into the woods to find what she needs.

Jack--taking his cow to market. This cow stole the show. Our brilliant prop makers made it so it was a bobblehead. So cool! They also made a remote control golden hen. Sadly, I don't have a picture of that.
