Into the Woods, Jr debut delayed

October 8, 2021

The Montgomery County Council for Performing Arts has announced that due to circumstances beyond their control they will have to postpone the debut of “Into the Woods, Jr.” for a week.

Originally scheduled to debut this Saturday, October 9, the production will instead debut Saturday October 16 at 7pm. Additional dates and curtain call times are as follows: Sunday October 17 at 2pm., Sunday October 24 at 2pm., and Monday October 25 at 7pm.

General Admission is $8. Senior Citizens and students are $5. All productions will be held at Roosevelt Auditorium in Mount Ida.

This is the final week of ‘Newbie’ introductions before the production of “Into the Woods, Jr.” begins. This is a tale of an imaginative, magical adventure as Jakob & Wilhelm Grimm’s classic fairy tales are all rolled in to one. As the intricate plot unfolds, Cinderella, her Prince, Little Red Ridinghood, the Wolf, Jack, Rapunzel, and other fairy tale characters are attempting to realize wishes of their own.
Noah Jerzak, a home school student, portrays the chicken that drops a golden egg. He likes the color black and he likes tractors. This, being his first performance, has been a learning experience of being sure to listen for his cue.

Rebekah Jerzak, also a home school student, has learned to be on time and on cue. Her favorite color is purple. She portrays a magic cow that is as white as milk. The cow, Milky White, helps end a curse on the baker’s family.

Paisley Pomraning is a student at Caddo Hills. She has been in two other productions that involved ballet. She has had fun with this group of performers. Her learning experience for this play is listening for her cue. Paisley portrays Florinda, Cinderella’s other stepsister. Paisley states that Florinda is cruel but yet hilarious. “I’m very funny and very good at being evil”.
