The Northeastern Oklahoma A&M College theatre experience program will present the famous Sondheim musical, “Into the Woods,” in the Fine Arts Center May 4-6.

“Into the Woods” is the Tony Award-winning mashup of The Brothers Grimm stories in one epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make.

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim take everyone’s favorite storybook characters and bring them together for a timeless yet relevant piece that is both enchanting and touching.

“Into the Woods” is a musically sophisticated show featuring talented performers from Oklahoma and Missouri, including 1989 NEO alum Kristie Harris who will play The Giantess alongside her three children cast in separate roles.
