Into the Woods Cast List

Dear Cast, 

Congratulations on your roles.

Some of you, we imagine will be elated, others neutral, and most likely some disappointed. The most important thing now is to move positively forward- those disappointed, unfortunately, that can be a part of casting experience. Hang in there. Avoid too much prejudgment about the worthiness of roles, about what you will or won’t sing, say or dance. As announced, there will be some song and line reassignments.
