Premier Performance



Young Actors Shine in their Upcoming Production of “Into the Woods JR.”

Chesterton, IN  – Actors from Premier Theatre, a division of Premier Performance, a local, professional performing arts company will offer Chesterton an amusingly different way to think about everyone’s favorite fairy tale characters through their production of Into the Woods JR.  The show, featuring 29 local young performers, runs April 11-13 at Duneland Community Church.


This family-friendly, 1-hour adaptation by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine is based on the Broadway production which won several Tony Awards, including Best Score, Best Book, and Best Actress in a Musical.  The musical follows a Baker and his Wife who learn they’ve been cursed with childlessness by the Witch next door.  The couple embark on a quest – swindling, deceiving, and stealing from such iconic characters as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, and Jack (fresh off the beanstalk!) – to get the special objects required to break the spell.  It is a poignant and whimsical retelling of the Grimm Brothers’ favorite tales.

Show runs April 11 at 7PM, April 12 at 7PM, and April 13 at 4PM & 7PM. Tickets will be sold at the door.  Tickets can be purchased in advance by visiting: Groups of 15 or more can book their tickets at a discount and receive additional group rate perks by contacting the theater directly.  For questions call 219-841-2266.
