Tickets are now available for the Community Theatre of Clay County's upcoming production.

This season's first show is called, "Into the Woods," a concert-style performance to take place Friday, Sept. 21, and Saturday, Sept. 22.

"Concert-style means the emphasis is going to be more on presenting the music and the singing," Director Lee Reberger said. "It's difficult music, and the show's going to be focused more on up-close interaction with the audience than choreography or scene changes."

The show, a classic, is about a young couple, who have been cursed by a witch, causing them to embark on a quest to find special objects that will break the spell. Along the way, the couple runs into Little Red, Cinderella, Rapunzel and Jack.

"It's not the kind of fairy-tales that you would normally think of as far as children go," Reberger told The Brazil Times. "There are some adult-themed scenes."

He believes the age group that would most enjoy the show would be teenagers and young adults.

The shows both include dinner buffets starting at 6:30 p.m., with the performances beginning around 7:15 p.m.

Tickets for individual shows are $25. Season tickets are $100 each and include four dinner shows and one dessert show.

To purchase tickets, call Lisa Beyers at 442-6909.

In addition, the theatre will have auditions for their November play, "Annie," on Sunday, Sept. 9, and Monday, Sept. 10.
