INto the Woods
Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim
Book by James Lapine
Directed by Dee Dee Batteast and Bill Jenkins
Musical Direction by Beth Truitt
Choreography by Dylan Cole
My final mainstage production at Ball State University, I was grateful to take on a classic Sondheim show in my senior year. Although I would love to direct musicals, this was actually my first time working on one! I learned so much from Bill and Dee Dee about efficiency, pacing, and working with a large cast. Without much warning, my grandma passed away during this production process. Needless to say, "sometimes poeple leave you halfway through the wood," hit a little harder every night than ever before.
