Lisa Crosby Wipperling and Hazel Rose Gibson are the guest artists for Morningside's production of Into the Woods

  As part of the Betty Ling Tsang Fine Arts Series, Morningside College presents Into the WoodsThis musical, lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine, unites favorite characters from Grimm's fairy tales, including Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood. The land in which these characters can interact is necessarily fantastical, and the production team at Morningside has realized this land quite vividly: a tree beside the stage is built upon a turntable so that it can reveal a character hidden in its hollow; a beanstalk grows from the raked stage high into the rafters; the orchestra pit is dug into the stage so that actors can walk around it, coming right out into the audience. Guest artists Hazel Rose Gibson and Lisa Crosby Wipperling invited our own Mark Munger to tour backstage. Come along.
