CHILDREN WILL LISTEN
INTO THE WOODS
'Into The Woods' is written by Stephen Sondheim, intertwining the stories of well known Brothers Grimm fairy tales. We come across 'Jack & The Beanstalk', 'Little Red Riding Hood, & ' Rapunzel' to name a few!
The show premiered on Broadway in 1987 and was released as a musical movie in 2014, with actors such as Johnny Depp & James Cordon.
"Children Will Listen" is the final number in the show, as a story and moral offering from the character of the Witch.
Performance tips - Sondheim's music is famously challenging, especially in timing & rhythms. Really try and feel the pulse throughout, whilst still keeping a relaxed feel to your words - tricky!
