Bridge Street Theater students head for the woods | News, Sports, Jobs


Layce Fickey, playing Rapunzel, and Landen Smeltz playing the Prince of Rapunzel will take the stage as Bridge Street Middle School presents “Into the Woods” this weekend.

WHEELING – Bridge Street Middle School presents “Into the Woods” at 7 pm Friday and Saturday, and 3 pm Sunday at Wheeling Park High School JB Chambers Performing Arts Center.

“Into the Woods” centers on the baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s Day; Little Red Riding Hood, who wishes to visit his grandmother; and Jack, who wants his cow to give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they can’t have children because of a witch’s curse, the two embark on a journey to break the curse and end up changing forever.

Bridge Street Middle School teacher and choir director Julie Schultz selected “Into the Woods” for the drama department because she believes the moral of the story relates to the students at the college. The story tells about the importance of relationships and how people can help each other achieve a goal.

This is the Bridge Street Middle School Theater Department’s fourth production, and it will feature students in grades 6-8. Schultz said she and her students are eager to share this musical adventure.

Tickets cost $ 5 for adults and $ 3 for students. Tickets can be purchased at Bridge Street Middle School or at the Performing Arts Center box office for each performance.
