“Into the Woods”: Young People’s Theater.
Nov. 17–20. Caroline Huntoon directs young local actors in the ambitious 1987 Steven Sondheim-James Lapine musical that uses the potent ingredients of Western fairy tales to explore the big questions of life. The show features one of Sondheim’s most eclectic scores, ranging in style from jazz to vaudeville to rhapsodic ballads and operatic duets and trios. 7 p.m. (Thurs.-Sat.), 1 p.m. (Sat.) & 2 p.m. (Sun.), Mendelssohn Theatre, 911 North University. Tickets $15 (seniors age 65 & over and youth age 18 & under, $10) in advance at muto.umich.edu, and (if available) at the door. 763–TKTS.
