"Greasepaint Youth Theatre is presenting a stellar production of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine's Into the Woods, one of the cleverest musicals ever written and one of the most difficult to pull off successfully.,,,The large Greasepaint cast is practically perfect. Declan Skaggs and Hailey Laidig form a couple you root to see succeed as the Baker and thhe Baker's Wife...As Cinderella, DJ Coon is smart, sweet and sensible...With an appropriately exuberant nature and line readings that are infused with care and understanding, Evan Kaushesh adds many layers to his portrayal of Jack...Olivia Feldman infuses Little Red Riding Hood with an abundance of sass underneath her sweet exterior, while also displaying hints of sensitivity and understanding in a performance that, like all of the other main cast members, she makes entirely her own. Director Becca Courtney doesn't make one false move while also adding many original touches" - Gil Benbrook, (click here to read the complete review)
