The Brothers Grimm hit the stage with an epic fairytale about wishes, family and the choices we make.

Into The Woods ColorThe 2015 New England Music Camp musical theater production will be Into the Woods, the Tony Award winning musical comedy with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim and book by James Lapine.
