The story follows a Baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the Baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a Witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
One of Sondheim’s most popular works, Into the Woods is a musically sophisticated show with the opportunity to feature actors adept at dark comedy.

Cushing Memorial Amphitheatre, or the Mountain Theatre, is a 3750-stone seat, open-air venue in Mount Tamalpais State Park, in Marin County. It has redwood groves and oak woodlands with a spectacular view from its 2,571-foot peak. On a clear day, visitors can see the Farallon Islands 25 miles out to sea, the Marin County hills, San Francisco and the bay, hills and cities of the East Bay, and Mount Diablo. The theatre is remote, therefore, remember to come prepared! Cell phone signal can be spotty. Bring water and whatever you need to protect you from sun exposure.
