Follow the stars and travel INTO THE WOODS!   Everyone thinks they know the stories of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel.   But what happened after “happily ever after?”   This witty and sophisticated musical about the legacy we pass on to future generations features an ingenious book by James Lapine and a timeless Stephen Sondheim score which includes the songs “Children Will Listen” and “No One Is Alone.”


Riverdale Rising Stars Director of Performing Arts Laurie Walton (Show Boat) stars as the Witch,  alongside Broadway veterans Jim Walton (The Mystery of Edwin Drood, 42nd Street, Merrily We Roll Along), Emily Walton (Peter and the Starcatcher, August: Osage County), Joe Cassidy (Catch Me If You Can, Next to Normal, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), Joseph Kolinsky (Titanic, Les Misérables, A Christmas Carol), Jamey Hood (How the Grinch Stole Christmas, The Shaggs), and Maryrose Wood (Merrily We Roll Along).  


The cast is rounded out by teenagers and adult alumni from the performing arts programs of the Riverdale Y, many of whom have performed Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, and on national tours.  Joining the Broadway talent will be Annette Arnold, Lily Bayrock, Eric Berger, Wiley Cohen, Arianne DeCerb, Jim DeBlasi, Patrick Dwyer, Leora Einleger, Shara Feit, Gregory Kanter, Jacob Levi-Dabby, Drew Lewis, Leo Lopez, Katleen Lozada, Luz Montez, Ezra Mutnick, Liz Powers, Marilyn Raider. Elia Rangel, Michal Schorsch, Catherine Schwartz, Diego Velazquez, Breffni Ward, and Chris Wilson.



This concert production will be directed by Bob Walton (performer in Broadway’s The Drowsy Chaperone, 42nd Street, Show Boat, and City of Angels), and the full orchestra will be led by music director Justin Fischer.





Riverdale Rising Stars, under the artistic direction of Laurie Walton, was created to provide the teens of the Riverdale community and beyond a professional repertory company experience.  Since its inception 12 years ago, the organization has expanded its programming to include Rising Stars Jr (ages 8-12), Riverdale Repertory Company (adult performers), and launching this spring, Little Rising Stars (ages 6-8).  Of greatest importance is the way that all build self-esteem, learn enormous respect for others, develop camaraderie and create lifelong friendships.  Together, these award-winning companies provide a world of expression, passion and creativity for all ages.  


Upcoming productions include the world premiere of the new musical MID-LIFE 2: THE CRISIS CONTINUES (April 28-29) featuring Broadway guest performers; and children performing in WHEN YOU WISH UPON A LITTLE STAR: A DISNEY REVUE (May 2), BABES IN ARMS (June 6, 9), and SEUSSICAL JR. (June 13, 16), along with several productions to be announced featuring teenagers and adults.
