The Playhouse is to celebrate the 10th anniversary of its annual stage school for young people, The Stage Experience, with a production of the Stephen Sondheim’s multi-award winning musical Into The Woods.
Into The Woods, which will be staged at the Greenside Place venue on July 31 and August 1, is based on Grimm’s fairy tales and follows the not-so-innocent quest to live happily ever after.
A new creative team led by acclaimed West End performer and director Peter Corry, will produce the show which features some of Sondheim’s most famous songs including Giants In The Sky and Children Will Listen.
Mr Corry returns to the Playhouse having played Inspector Javert in the 1993 original record-breaking production of Les Misérables there.
Adam Knight, general manager said: “The Edinburgh Playhouse Stage Experience encourages active engagement between young people and the arts, nurtures relationships within our local community and provides participants with an exciting summer activity.”
If you would like to appear in this year’s production and are between the ages of 11 and 24, auditions will take place on April 25 and 26 at the Playhouse. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
