If you’re not familiar with the magical musical masterpiece that is Sondheim’s Into the Woods, here is the prologue for a wonderful taste of what is to come. Familiar fairy-tale characters (Little Red Riding Hood, Jack of Beanstalk fame, and Cinderella) – we thought we knew and loved so well – are confronted by life’s compelling realities. Combining the whimsy and generous humour of films such as The Princess Bride, and gothic Tim Burton-like shocks and surprises, Into the Woods boasts a beautiful, soaring score, arguably amongst Sondheim’s best, and a profound and witty script. The musical has won numerous awards, including Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Book.
Accompanied by a Stage Orchestra of 28 Westlake students, and some stunning vocalists, you do not want to miss this!
As You Like It – 25th – 29th July – Westlake Girls High School Events Centre Adult: $20, Student: $15, Family (2 Adults and 2 Youth): $50
As You Like It is one of Shakespeare’s most beloved comedies. A joyous celebration of love in all its games, trials and confusions. The play showcases Shakespeare’s skill in blending comedy, romance, and social commentary. Through a series of mistaken identities, humorous misunderstandings, and poetic musings, As You Like It celebrates the transformative power of love and the freedom found in nature. In the festive, Woodstock-inspired forest of Arden, anything can happen, including the miraculous reconciliation of feuding brothers, the restoration of a fallen duke, and the resurrection of the long-lost Rosalind.
Both casts and their directing teams have been putting in massive hours for these two seasons, so please make sure to come along and support!
