KEENE, NH — MoCo Arts is thrilled to present Into the Woods Jr, a musical performance by its talented middle school students, on May 14 at 2 & 4:30 p.m. at MoCo Arts’ Black Box Theatre. Tickets to the performance sponsored in part by Season Sponsor @310 Marlboro Street and Show Sponsor Savings Bank of Walpole cost $12. Tickets are selling fast! To purchase, call MoCo Arts at (603) 357-2100 or stop by MoCo at 40 Roxbury Street, Keene, NH during business hours.

The show follows a baker and his wife as they journey into the woods to break a curse that was placed upon them by a wicked witch. Along the way, they meet well-known characters such as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk. The musical is sure to delight audiences of all ages with its humor and catchy songs.

“Into the Woods Jr is one of the most beloved musicals of all time, and we are excited to present this unique version of the story with our talented young performers,” said MoCo Arts Artistic Director of Theatre, Laura Carbonneau. “This is a wonderful opportunity to see young talent shine on stage and enjoy the magic of theater.”

The performance is directed by Keene Middle School Drama Club Director and Teacher, Dominic DiBenedetto. Dominic joined MoCo Arts’ year-round theatre teaching staff this semester after directing and teaching at MoCo’s C.A.K.E. Summer Camp for eight years. He has experience performing in community theater for the past 25 years. You may have seen Dominic in The Lions Club productions in Keene or in Vermont performing with the Springfield Community Players, Main Street Arts, and Wild Goose Players.

MoCo Arts’ award-winning theatre program, for kids and teens in grades 2 through 12, offers classes in musical theatre, straight plays, improvisation workshops, and more. Each Musical Theatre class rehearses once a week, working together to perform in a fully produced musical. All students are cast in a role and are encouraged (but not required) to practice and audition for specific roles. Students then work together with the director’s learning elements of acting, singing, and dancing to put on the production. Tuition assistance is available for all classes and camps at MoCo Arts.
