The power of musical theatre is that it compels us to engage our imaginations, to suspend our disbelief, to open our minds, and to connect with others. Within these moments is that magical place where we laugh the deepest, cry the hardest, and live the fullest - which forever changes how we view our world. Creating dramatic moments, both silent and sensational, takes expertise, finesse and lots of support. Family Musical Theatre is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the state of Missouri, and donates a portion of its proceeds to charity each year. While ticket sales help defray the cost of each production, they do not cover the entire cost of what is needed to put on the professional productions FMT has become known for.

On the surface, Into the Woods is an entertaining blend of some of the world's most beloved fairy tales set to the magnificent music of Stephen Sondheim… but like all the best fairy tales, it contains light…and darkness, becoming a metaphor for our own personal journeys in life: what paths we take, what wishes we make and ultimately what we discover along the way in regards to love, loss, values, choices and responsibility. Each of our journeys can have a profound effect on everything around us and of course our journeys never truly end. Past decisions and actions, both large and small, can come back to haunt us. Like the characters in the show, in life, we continually find ourselves having to return to the woods, faced with new challenges, new perspectives and new choices. Into the Woods made its Broadway debut in 1987. The world has changed quite a bit since then, but the underlying messages and universal themes that this show touches on are just as profound today...if not more so. When things seem most at odds, who do we blame? Who actually is to blame? What is right? What is wrong? Are either we or those with opposing viewpoints actually alone in our global community? It has been a delight bringing our version of this production to life. May your own personal quests to live "happily ever after" be ultimately realized. Be careful what you wish for and take responsibility for your actions.
