(Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Book by
As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful
witch, a baker and his wife are childless.
Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they
venture into the forest to find the ingredients
that will reverse the spell and restore the
witch's beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as
yellow as corn, a blood-red cape, and a slipper
of gold. During their journey, they meet
Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel
and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a
wish. Everyone's wishes are granted, but the
consequences of their actions return to haunt
them later with disastrous results.
Appropriate for Middle School and up.
