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.”
