THE MEDIA THEATRE'S 'INTO THE WOODS' FEATURES JOSIE INTHAM OF SPRINGTON LAKE MIDDLE SCHOOL
Of the show, she said, “"Into the Woods" is more weird and complex than the musicals I'm used to. It doesn't have the "happily ever after" ending, and I think that makes it more realistic show. In real life, just because you are a good person, you could still live an awful life, and if you are an awful person, you could still live a great life. "Into the Woods" captures the realistic part of life. Stories with the perfect happy ending can be boring.”
“This production has a ton of great actors and singers, and there is an interesting twisty plot. And if you come on different weekends, you can see a different cast,” she explained, approaching the ‘double cast’ in the production.
“I've loved musical theater since my very first show three years ago, and it's taught me a lot, from being part of a team to public speaking to pulling a project together as part of a team,” Josie said. ”It's also helped me to be a better performer in other contexts, from school presentations to singing or clarinet performances.”
