The Prep Players presented the Broadway musical Into the Woods on May 11 and 12, featuring the music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. In this show, all the fairy tale characters everyone knows so well set off on a journey to get their greatest wish. What they learn, though, is that wishes have consequences and life after "ever after" isn't always happy. The show followed this year’s theme of telling stories as an ensemble, which the Prep Players started with the Story Pirates Project in the fall. 

Director Megan Hoover complimented the actors' and musicians' talents, which earned Halo Award nominations: "The Prep Players was recognized by Seven Angels Theatre with six Halo nominations for The Story Pirates Project and Into the Woods, which are a testament to how hard this group worked this year...I hope you will join me in congratulating them on this amazing achievement."

The cast included Fairfield Prep students and young women from area high schools. The music director was Christine Evans, who led a professional orchestral pit with the memorable music classics.
