FLORIDA REP PRESENTS "INTO THE WOODS"
Florida Repertory Theatre (our downtown neighbor!) presents “Into the Woods” and Into the Woods Jr.” as part of the Education Department’s popular Conservatory Program. Both productions feature a professional creative team and star local teens on the theatre’s outdoor stage. “Into the Woods” is Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s modern classic that looks at all the famous fairy tales in one spellbinding story.

“Into the Woods” plays April 14 – 24 and “Into the Woods Jr” is on the stage April 28 – May 2. All performances begin at 8 PM, and tickets range in price from $60 to $100 for a socially distanced 6-person square on Florida Rep’s lawn. Seating is limited in the outdoor venue and Florida Rep asks that tickets be purchased in advance, either by calling 239-332-4488 or online at www.FloridaRep.org.
Face coverings are required at all times when not inside the seating box, and the theatre will provide a mask to anyone who does not bring their own. The theatre is not serving concessions at this time, however, audiences are welcome to provide their own refreshments. Outdoor restroom facilities are available as are the restrooms inside the theatre lobby (requires temperature check).
