ANN ARBOR – After three years of renovation, the Pioneer High School Theatre Guild is back in Schreiber Auditorium.

To celebrate that new space, the guild is performing James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning “Into The Woods” between Nov. 4-13.

Audience members will follow the cast as they embody a baker and his wife, Cinderella and Jack, who all have to deal with the disastrous results of granted wishes and witch curses.

“One thing that makes me very excited about PTG’s production of “Into the Woods” is the group of people who are involved in the production! I am so excited for this group of Seniors to finally get their time to shine and showcase how truly talented they all are!  Unfortunately, the class of 2023 had their PTG experience cut short because of the pandemic,” said Pioneer High School senior Isabeli Buendia, who will play the Witch, in a release.

The special show will have a gala on its opening night with a pre-show dinner and entertainment. Participants will also have premium seating during the show. Gala tickets cost $75.

Regularly-priced tickets for students, Pioneer staff and seniors cost $15. Adult tickets cost $20.

Here’s when you can catch a show:

  • Friday, Nov. 4, at 7:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 5, at 7:30 p.m.
  • Sunday, Nov. 6, at 2 p.m. (matinee)
