Digitally Ever After: Video Projections Shine in "Into the Woods"

Printer-friendly version Share
School of Theatre production of "Into the Woods" uses a variety of digital projections.

A single spotlight shines across the darkened stage of the Pavilion Theatre illuminating the innocence in Little Red Riding Hood’s face as she makes a dire mistake. Little Red, as the time-pressed student crew refers to her during technical rehearsals, is a character in the Penn State School of Theatre’s most recent production of the musical “Into the Woods.” She delivers her lines with intentional uncertainty, and disappears behind the looming wall of her grandmother’s house.

Based on a combination of timeless Brothers Grimm fairy tales, Penn State’s rendition of “Into the Woods” — a tale of what happens when happily ever after meets reality — is ripe with technological twists that modernize the classic show.  For the full story, click here.
