Studio One presents ‘Into the Woods’
By Robert Deckert
There was a live orchestra composed of several high school band directors and conducted by violinist Travis Newton of the Syracuse Symphony of New York.
The production focused on incorporating 7 to 12th grade students from the Public Schools of Robeson County.
Additional roles were filled by various staff members, community volunteers and college students.
Among those college students were UNCP’s Carlos Peralta, Laura Kay Oxendine and Ron Matthew Jones.
The musical was sponsored by the Wal-Mart of Lumberton, Robeson County Commissioners and the PSRC AG Program. The play received positive feedback from the audience members.
Audience member Maureen Adams said, “Some of the characters have really outdone themselves.”
“Overall it was a good show. For people so little, they did a great job,” Blue said.
“Into the Woods” works as an original story which encompasses several of the fairy tales from the collection of the Brothers Grimm.
“Into the Woods” ran Nov. 24-26 at the GPAC .
