Magical musical comes to Dunblane woodland

The Dunblane Centre, in conjunction with Doubletree at Dunblane Hydro, is delighted to announce its presentation of Stephen Sondheim’s musical 'Into the Woods'. With an ensemble cast of adult performers drawn from some of Scotland’s leading amateur dramatic companies, and performed outdoors amongst the trees in the beautifully atmospheric grounds of the Hydro, this promises to be truly magical.

Into the Woods blends various familiar fairy tales with an original story of a childless Baker and his Wife, who catalyse the action of the story by attempting to reverse a curse on their family in order to have a child. With familiar Grimm characters that we all grew up with - Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Little Red Riding Hood complete with wolf, among others - act one finishes with each character realising their ‘happily ever after’. Sondheim then lets us follow their stories beyond this, to see what happens next. With an outstanding Sondheim score, a beautifully moving story and amazing setting and costumes this will be a unique experience

Stewart Prodger, Dunblane Centre Trustee, said “This show mixes some much-loved familiar characters with more than a few twists, and bringing it to life out in the woods is something we hope will prove a memorable night for show-goers. May/June often gives us the best weather, but please bear in mind this is an outdoor production in Scotland, so please dress accordingly! We’ve brought together some great Scottish talent into Dunblane, so don’t miss out on this rare opportunity of an enchanted evening’s entertainment.”
