Staff report

LUMBERTON — Tickets are available now for a show that goes deep into the lives of well-known storybook characters.

James Lapine and Stephen Sondheim’s Tony Award-winning musical “Into the Woods” will show from 7 to 9 p.m. June 8 at the Carolina Civic Center in Lumberton.

The story follows a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the king’s festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn they cannot have a child because of a witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
