Presented through special arrangement with Music Theater International

In March 2014, more than 70 of Marcy School's 6th, 7th and 8th grade actors and technicians wowed audiences with six breathtaking performances of the musical Into the Woods, a "cock-eyed" view of everyone's favorite fairy tales, featuring characters from stories such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack and the Beanstalk. Students rehearsed every day for eight weeks with professional artists and quality sets, costumes, sound and lighting. The school musical is one of the key ways in which Project SUCCESS helps students build confidence, gain new experiences, strengthen relationships, and learn more about themselves through the power of theater. See below for the cast list, performance photos, and program information.
