Into the Woods

Join us for Into the Woods presented by the Protean Players Friday, August 13 through Sunday, August 15, 2021 at the State Street Theater.

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.
An area-wide youth theater, the Protean Players is (meaning ‚Äúversatile”) is open to students from high schools in New Ulm and surrounding towns, who have a passion for the performing arts.
