The Virginia Wesleyan University Theatre’s production of Into the Woods—music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim; book by James Lapine—packed the house for each of its six performances. The Thursday night performance was attended by about 100 Virginia Theatre Association conference attendees — mostly middle school and high school students.
