We are hoping to raise around £1500 for our upcoming production of Into the Woods, which will be held at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre in York. Into the Woods is a 1987 musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, and book by James Lapine. The musical intertwines the plots of several Brothers Grimm fairy tales, and the consequences of 'after ever after'. We have until 24th February to raise our funds, so require donations urgently! Our cast and production team are working incredibly hard to deliver a heartfelt, unmissable performance - but we won't be able to do it without your help! From the stars onstage to the tireless team behind everything, we would be very grateful for your donations!
