Into the Woods is directed by Frank Portanova, music directed by Chloe Sasson, and produced by Jason Summers and Jessica Bittner.  The cast features local talent from Westchester and New York City including Ruperta Nelson, *Nick Masson, Robyn O’Brien, *Katie Fox-Kirsch, Tim Abrahamsen, Daisy Guevara, Daniel Pivovar, Melissa Trainor, Kyle LaGrutta, Peter Ackerman, Brittney Bara, Marissa Caro, Erica Ackerman, Dakota Martin, Chris Nardi and *Scott Zimmerman.

“We’re thrilled to have some Hope veterans return to our stage, while introducing some new performers to the team and the cause” said Gina Noto, President of the Hope For Change Foundation.  “It’s great to have such an incredibly talented cast who are willing to volunteer their time performing, while being so valuably philanthropic.”

In Into the Woods, James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim masterfully weave together the famous fairy tales we know and love as the Baker and his Wife, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of the beanstalk), Cinderella and the Witch meet on their respective journeys to ‘happily ever after.’ However, ‘happily ever after’ might not turn out to be everything they expected. What begins as a lively irreverent fantasy becomes a moving lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children
