CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – TheatreUNI will present “Into the Woods” at 7 p.m., Friday, April 21, and 2 p.m., Saturday, April 22 and Sunday, April 23, at the Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center on the University of Northern Iowa campus.

“Into the Woods,” with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, is the fourth offering of TheatreUNI’s 2016-17 season.

“Into the Woods” will feature the work of guest designer Sean Urbantke from Washington, D.C. Urbantke has designed for companies around the country such as Amphibian Stage Productions and Trinity Shakespeare Festival. His set incorporates musical motifs into the floor and scenery to emphasize the importance of the music in the production.

Guest projections designer Kristen Geisler created the images of the woods and the giant. Her work can be seen in past productions at companies such as Lexington Children’s Theatre, Clarence Brown Theatre and Triad Stage Company. By pulling modern elements into the telling of the story, Geisler created a new way to see the woods. 

Tickets range in price from $16-$46. Tickets can be purchased from the Gallagher Bluedorn box office between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Saturday. The box office also opens one hour before curtain time. “Into the Woods” includes mature content.
