Name: Phoebe Paslaski
School, grade: St. Joe's, 8th grade
Character: The Witch
Why do you like this character? It's different for me because she's mean. It's stepping out of the box and challenging me to take on new things.
What's your favorite song in the production? The finale. It's starts out saying how children will listen, so be careful what you say. It ends with the signature "Into the Woods" song.
Why should people see "Into the Woods?" People should come to see it because it's a take on all of the fairy tales. It teaches you lessons, like don't go into the woods. The songs are very upbeat.
