Forestry Fund-Raising

Creative Arts Theatre & School in Arlington celebrates its 30th year with Into the Woods (Fund-raiser Show!), a performance and live auction benefiting the school's graduating seniors. Stephen Sondheim's twisted, fairy tale musical mishmash is an appropriate backdrop for artists just entering the real world. The childhood favorites--Jack, Little Red, Cinderella, etc.--take separate paths into the woods (see?) to get their wish. Sing-songy optimism is the real toll of these woods, where giants, spells and wolves wait. The moral comes after "happily ever after" in this musical masterpiece. Performances run through Sunday, with shows at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for children. Call 817-861-CATS or visit creativearts.org for details.
Fridays, 7:30 p.m.; Saturdays, 7:30 p.m.; Sundays, 2:30 p.m. Starts: May 1. Continues through May 10, 2009
