Ever since students returned from Christmas break, the cast of “Into the Woods” has been working diligently to rehearse this complex musical. With a shorter rehearsal period, cast and tech crew members have been focused and determined to put on a wonderful production. The week prior to opening night, tech week, is when multiple elements are added to the show including a live orchestra, costumes, makeup, lights, props, and set. Becoming acclimated to the new characteristics of the show is both exciting and beneficial during tech week.

Junior Johnny Robainia, playing the role of Cinderella’s Prince, explained that “Costumes definitely help because they change the way you move and put you in the mindset that you’re someone else.” He also described the costumes “help me connect with what I’m trying to present to the audience.”

Freshman Andy Wissink, the youngest cast member in the show, playing the role of Jack, stated “Costumes allow me to not only play the role, but become the role.” The believe costumes are the final element that create an extraordinary show.

Each detail in this show helped create the incredible story that the cast shared with audiences this past weekend. Every final preparation created a breathtaking performance that was enjoyed by many.
