Musical show at American School of Doha

The Peninsula

“Go to the woods and bring me back, One: the cow as white as milk,Two: the cape as red as blood,Three: the hair as yellow as corn,Four: the slipper as pure as gold”.  And so it begins.  A fairy tale with in a fairy tale. Wait, not within a fairy tale, within four of them! 

Into the Woods Jr., this year’s American School of Doha’s Middle School production, is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine recounts four familiar childhood fairy tales woven together by a baker, his wife, and a witch who of course happens to be evil, although in all fairness, it’s partly because the baker takes her magic beans! 

As it turns out, this witch needs the aforementioned articles in order to lift a certain curse that has left the baker’s wife barren, and so the hunt for these items begin.  These characters cross paths with Jack of “Jack and the Beanstalk” fame, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Cinderella.

And while everybody on stage finagles their way into going to the king’s festival, it’s such a nice feeling to know that you are already there… and you didn’t even have to sell your cow to do this.

Tickets are available at the American School of Doha and please email [email protected] for event information.
