Prepare to embark on a dark, mysterious journey to discover what really happens after happily ever after. Urban Arts Productions and the Maritime Museum of British Columbia reunite to bring Stephen Sondheim’s beloved  Tony Award®-winning musical INTO THE WOODS to Victoria audiences this summer.

This award winning musical invites audiences to slip into a world where magic beans create a ladder to the sky, Prince Charming is just one golden slipper away, and wolves haunt the forest searching for a delicious victim. Filled with soaring melodies by Stephen Sondheim, the master of modern American musical theatre, Into the Woods is a spellbinding musical filled with romance, magic and the unexpected consequences of dreams that come true, and dreams that become shattered.

Into the Woods is staged ‘in the round’ in the Historic Victorian Courtroom at the Maritime Museum of British Columbia in Bastion Square. “No entrance or exit is off limits for the actors and no seat is privileged for the audience.” - Monday Magazine.

Into The Woods is a bold, exciting musical that breaks boundaries, challenges audiences, and invites audiences to experience their childhood fairy tales in a brand new light. Urban Art’s is excited to be bringing this captivating musical to Victoria audiences for the summer season, staging it in the original Supreme Courtroom of British Columbia. Urban Arts breaks theatre conventions with having no traditional set, and where the action of the story will happen all around you. Characters come to life and interact in alarming ways - it is a journey of happiness, marriage, birth, and death flashing before your very eyes. It is a montage, a whirlwind, a dream, a life and a nightmare all in one. “There’s simply nothing else in town that’s quite as literate, as moody or, well, as mad hot as Urban Arts’ shows.” - Culture Vulture Victoria.

Into The Woods features an amazing company of some of Victoria’s most celebrated performers led by Fran Bitonti as the Witch with Tara Britt, Heather Jarvie, Pat Rundell, Jaymes D. Goodman, Pam Miller, Kelley O’Connor, and introducing Alina Marris, Meaghan Hommy, Kyle Oliver, Bryan Christensen, and more.

Tickets for this musical adventure in the woods are available through Urban Arts’ online box office at www.urbanartsproductions.com.

Located in the heart of Bastion Square, the Maritime Museum of BC has a wealth of artifacts and history and is a fantastic place to get a glimpse back into the nautical customs of the North Pacific. With exhibits ranging from pirates to heritage vessels and Victoria’s original 1889 Courtroom, the Maritime Museum of BC is always a fascinating visit.
