This week, on March 7-March 9 at 7 p.m. Grand Junction High School Theater presents the musical, ‘Into The Woods’. Pre-sale tickets for students and seniors begin at $7 and $10 for adults. Ticket prices at the door will increase, making student and senior admission $10 and adult admission $13. Students, Joey Santa-Maria, junior, and Derek Braithwaite, senior, are actors in the play.
The the play is about multiple childhood stories coming together to make one. The characters come together to get what they wish and realize what you wish for is not always what you want.
Santa-Maria plays the role as Jack, a main character, in the play and said he was very excited. This is Santa-Maria’s first musical.
“It’s about life which makes it cool. It connects to the social life. It’s funny and a good family play to go connect with,” said Santa-Maria.
Braithwaite plays the role as the wolf, a minor character that could be considered as an antagonist in the play and said that he was excited for opening night.
“Even though you may be a little different in some way, you can still find friends and family within others,” Braithwaite said.
