News: PCC Offers Musical "Into The Woods" Beginning March 30

Into the Woods

For its spring musical this year, Pasadena City College has undertaken the fun challenge of Stephen Sondheim’s “Into The Woods.” Directed by Whitney Rydbeck, PCC Performing and Communication Arts division assistant professor, the musical has won three Tony awards, including Best Book of a Musical and Best Score.

PCC Instructor Richard Kuller created the choreography for the production, with musical direction by instructor Kyle Luck.

“We are fortunate to have such talent here that we want to take advantage of it,” Rydbeck said.

Sondheim is generally recognized as one of the most influential people working in modern musical theater.

“Into The Woods” intertwines familiar characters from various fairy tales as well as an original plot of a couple trying to break a curse placed on them by a witch.

Performances will be held on March 30 - 31 at 8 p.m., and April 5 - 7 at 8 p.m. There will be a 2 p.m. matinee on March 31 and April 7. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for PCC students, faculty, and staff. Parking is available for $2 on campus.
