Into The Woods
Dramatic Productions presents
Into The Woods

28 Aug 2015 to 12 Sep 2015

What happens when all your favourite fairy tale characters meet? We find out in Stephen Sondheim's classic musical - Into the Woods.

When a baker and his wife learn they have been cursed with childlessness by a witch next door, they embark on a quest for the special objects required to break the spell.

They swindle Jack (the one who climbed the beanstalk), accost Cinderella and steal from Little Red Ridinghood and Rapunzel.

Along the way they meet an evil wolf, charming princes and wicked in-laws. But by the end of Act 1 everyone’s wishes have come true (well almost everyone’s!).

But little do they know that the fulfillment of their dreams would have consequences and in Act 2 their happy lives begin to unravel as their actions bring destruction and danger to the kingdom.

Creatives Richard Block Richard Block
Director

Richard arrived on the Canberra theatre scene late in life, somewhere between his 31st and 32nd birthdays. His first show was in Phoenix Players production of Kiss Me Kate in 2006, where he "Fell in love with theatre" and since then he has appeared in dozens of shows ranging from plays to musicals to pantomimes.

In 2010 Richard began his foray into producing shows as the Production Manager for Phoenix Players Disney's double bill - Cinderella and The Aristocats. He found managing two casts of about 50 children set him up to handle adult casts like "no other text book training could ever have". In 2012 he got his first chance direct with How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying as part of the Phoenix Players - Phoenix Rising Program.

In 2013 he performed leading roles in Ickle Pickle's production of Oliver! playing the "suitably sinister" Bill Sikes, as Frank Butler in Queanbeyan Player's Annie Get Your Gun and as understudy for the role of Javert in Canberra Philharmonic Society's Les Miserable.

In 2013 Richard launched the StageCenta website as a resource and information hub for the theatre scene.

In 2014 Richard established Dramatic Productions to co-produce The Rokitelly Man with Ickle Pickle Productions. And then in 2015 directed and produced The Last Five Years and teaming up with the ANU School of Music Into the Woods which won 3 Canberra Area Theatre awards. In 2016 Richard directed Dramatic Productions 4th show Catch Me If You Can.

2017 saw the last production directed by Richard, Sweeney Todd. Afterwards he would exclusively produce theatre, staging Heathers the Musical in 2018 and then The Producers in 2019, starring Daryl Somers (Hey Hey Its Saturday) and directed by Rachael Beck.
