WHEELING — Bridge Street Middle School presents “Into the Woods” at 7 p.m. on March 6 and 7 and at 3 p.m. on March 8 at the Wheeling Park High School J.B. Chambers Performing Arts Center. Tickets can be purchased beginning Monday at Bridge Street Middle School or at the Performing Arts Center box office for each performance.

“Into the Woods” centers on the baker and his wife, who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King’s festival; Little Red Riding Hood, who wishes to visit her grandmother; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse and wind up changed forever.

Bridge Street Middle School teacher and Choral Director Julie Schultz selected “Into the Woods” for the theater department because she feels the moral of the story is relatable to middle school students. The story relates the importance of relationships and how people can help one another to achieve a goal. This is the fourth production for the Bridge Street Middle School Theater Department, and it will feature students in grades six, seven and eight. Schultz said she and her students look forward to sharing this musical adventure.
