Into the Woods – Time Change
MDI High School announced on Friday night during the halftime of the MDI-Nokomis football game that a change has been made in the scheduled performances of "Into the Woods" at MDI High School.
Because of a potential conflict between the opening weekend of "Into the Woods" and a potential Class C Northern Regional Football Final, a change has been made in the schedule of both the performance and the possible regional final football game.
Opening weekend performances of "Into the Woods" will now be Friday Night November 10th at 7 PM and Saturday and Sunday November 11th and 12th in the afternoon at 2 PM. The change is that there will now be a 2 PM matinee showing on Saturday November 11th rather than a 7 PM showing.
Should MDI advance to the Regional Finals, which they would host as the number 1 seed, that game would take place on Saturday night, November 11th at 7 PM, rather than Friday night, November 10th.
The Mount Desert Island High School Drama Department will present "Into the Woods" November Friday and Saturday nights November 10th and 17th and 18th at 7 PM and matinee showings at 2 PM on Saturday November 11th, Sunday November 12th and Saturday the 18th.
"Once upon a time . . ." is the beginning of many a bedtime story for many of us. It is also the beginning of the Broadway musical Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim (music & lyrics) and James Lapine (book & direction). In a twist of genius they combine the stories of Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and the newly invented Baker and His Wife into a story of deceit, dreams fulfilled and broken, wishes, death, deception, magic and almost happily ever after." -- Bruce Janiga
