Our award-winning summer musical series brings the much loved and hauntingly beautiful Into the Woods to Wimberley this June.

As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch, a baker and his wife are childless.

During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a wish.

Antony & Cleopatra

A love that changed history. One fateful meeting reshapes the ancient world when the great Roman warrior Mark Antony, like Caesar before him, falls in love with the incomparable Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile. His devotion to desire rather than duty is the beginning of a downward spiral for him, the Republic and Cleopatra, the last in her bloodline. Shakespeare's tragedy presents history as a breathtaking pageant full of passion, intrigue, exotic locales and the larger-than-life characters that brought about the death of an Egyptian dynasty and the birth of the Roman Empire. This production is designed, built, and performed by a highly trained and talented cast of high school students, after being involved in a six-week Shakespeare intensive.
