  • What happens after happily ever after

    The age-old quest for “happily ever after” has unfolded in fairy tales, stories and movies throughout time. In 1986, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine set out to create a musical that asked the next question: What happens after happily ever after? The result was a Tony Award-winning musical that presents a new twist on fairy tales. This weekend, the high school company of StageDoor Theatre in Conifer sets out to answer the question of life after happily ever after in its production of “Into the Woods.”

The latest production of this time-honored show, presented by StageDoor Theatre’s high school company, offers a fresh take on this 80-year-old theatrical gem.
