Passion Projects Theatre to put on 'Into the Woods' Oct. 9-11

Passion Projects Theatre Company will present Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's "Into The Woods" for live audiences at 7 p.m. Friday to Sunday, Oct. 9-11, at the Wing Park Bandshell, 1010 Wing St. in Elgin.

Directed by Passion Projects co-founder Kyle Reid Hass, this production has been carefully planned so its rehearsal and performance process will minimize the risk of exposure to COVID-19 for its cast, crew, and audience.

The cast of "Into the Woods" features Lexie Bailey, Mae Speer, Jeremy Swanton, Frank Caputo, Marina Magnelli, Shannon McGraw, Rhealee Fernandez, Dana Norris, Kyle Reid Hass, Johnny Rabe, Dan England, Aaron Hill, Keith Mankowski, Kailey Henderson, and Laura Thoresen.

This production will take a dark and contemporary look at the classic musical, striving to emphasize the profound and often chilling statements the piece makes about topics such as desire, happiness, crisis, family, growing up, and caring for children.

Tickets are $25 each.
