5 August – 26 August
Crammed with magical moments this 1987 Tony Award winning musical resonates in surprising ways today. This is not exactly the tale you remember as a childless baker with his wife along with Cinderella, Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood, Jack (amongst others) combat giants, break spells and strive for happiness. As each decade passes new generations discover the delights of Sondheim and Lapine’s mashup masterwork. Warm the cold Dunedin winter and take a parent or child on a brilliant adventure into the woods and out again with the 2017 Fortune company.
