We are so excited to produce Into the Woods Jr. running February 22-March 4! Mark your calendars today to see Marian Barber as the Bakers Wife in the teen cast of Into the Woods Jr.!

Question 1: What is your favorite fairy tale and why?

One of my favorite fairy tales is Pinocchio because he believes so strongly and has so much faith that he could be a real boy and it comes true. This story shows us that if we believe and disregard what skeptics say, we can accomplish what we truly desire. 

Question 2: Why do you think fairy tales are still important in today's society?

Fairy tales show us basic morals of how to be kind to others, how to believe in ourselves, and how to work hard for what we desire. Fairy tales have always been comforting and they remind me of my childhood. Sometimes, when I get too stressed I have to make myself go back to simpler times when I would read fairy tales and wonder at the characters' amazing courage and determination. 

Question 3: If you could be any fairy tale character which one would you be and why?

If I could be any fairy tale character, I would be Cinderella. She gets the opportunity to step out of her comfort zone and view the world through a new set of eyes. It would be fantastic to be able to step out of your life to view things from a different point in society. Through all of this change and confusion, Cinderella remains kind and humble which is the best thing about her character.
