Into the Woods!

Into the Woods

Eleanor Roosevelt High School’s production of Into the Woods in December was a big success!  Into the Woods is a musical that intertwines the plots of several fairy tales including Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Jack and the Beanstalk, and others.  This was the first big show at ERHS for new drama department head, Chris Mannino, and he hit it out of the park for his debut. The consequences of the characters quests hit all the emotions, and Mannino’s interpretation made several scenes and several characters laugh-out-loud funny.

The entire production rivaled a professional performance of the same show that we saw over the summer, and some of the roles were even better than that version.  There are a lot of talented kids at Roosevelt, and this show highlighted many of them.
