Fairy tales with a difference in Rotherham

Have your say

A PRODUCTION of Into the Woods - a retelling with a twist of children’s stories including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood and Jack and the Beanstalk - will be at Rotherham Civic Theatre next month.

The Stephen Sondheim show, by Phoenix Productions, runs from March 20 to 23.

The show is a retelling of the classic fairy tales but with a violent and more sinister undercurrent resulting in some lessons in morality.

At the end of the play the characters unite to end the violence and try to pass on the lessons they’ve learned to the next generation.
