THERE ARE GIANTS IN THE SKY

 

There are Giants in the Sky explores the human side of some of our most beloved fairytales through the groundbreaking work of composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim. Making its debut on the Broadway stage, then into a feature film, Into the Woods addresses themes of marriage, family, children, infidelity, coming of age, jealousy, forgiveness, and hope. As charming as it is poignant, Into the Woods retells popular fairytales in a way that humanizes the characters, making their messages and journeys even more meaningful. Join Bobby for this one-of-a-kind intensive focusing on character work, song interpretation, and storytelling. A program not be missed by any young aspiring musical theatre enthusiast.
