Southern Door's "Into the Woods" highlights busy month for high school fine arts



 

By Cameron Friehe, Southern Door Student Correspondent



Southern Door's very own music program will submerge musical goers  "Into the Woods." This Tony award-winning musical is about a baker (Cameron Friehe) and his wife (Megan Neubauer) who cannot have a child because of the curse that the witch (Anna Lebrun) has placed on the baker's family. Therefore, the baker and his wife must go into the woods in search of four objects. On this journey, they will encounter characters such as the young maiden Cinderella (MaCayla Moore), a sad young lad named Jack (Matthew Martinez-Garcia), and the hungry Little Red Riding Hood (Shaina Skaletski).  Actress MaCayla Moore elaborates that " This is a very complex musical, and the music is challenging but is worth the tears."





Performance dates include November 9th-11th at 7:00 PM and November 12th at 2:00 PM. Ticket pricing for adults is $10 and $7 for students 18 and under. Tickets are available online at www.southerndoorauditorim.org or at the Southern Door High School office.



Editor's Note: High schools in Door and Kewaunee County are showcasing their talents on stage this month. Last weekend, Sevastopol High School performed "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," while this weekend features a variety show at Luxemburg-Casco and "Cinderella" at Kewaunee High School.
