Tampa, Fla. – Proceeds from the New Tampa Players’ performance of Into the Woods on Thursday, Nov. 10 will benefit the community, via the non-profit University Area Community Development Corporation (University Area CDC).
Tickets will be sold on a “pay what you can” basis at the door to the November 10, 7:30 p.m. performance, held at the University Area Community Center at 14013 N. 22nd St., Tampa, 33613.
This popular tale incorporating many beloved and well-known characters into one musical will be directed by G. Frank Meekins. Choreography will be by Jarrett W. Koski. Book is by James Lapine and music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim.
“Into the Woods is such a family friendly show, and the fact that people can pay as little or as much as they choose makes this show accessible for families. It also provides a simple way for people to support their community in a way that fits their budget,” said Wendy Leigh, UACDC chief development and marketing officer.
The UACDC Community Center offers an array of affordable programs and services for the community, including a community garden, computer training, youth and adult sports leagues, performing arts classes for children, performance spaces, a gym and a brand new pavilion.
Proceeds from this performance will go toward the UACDC mission of providing support for thousands of Tampa residents through youth programs, adult education and resource assistance. Its primary mission is the redevelopment and sustainability of the at-risk areas surrounding University of South Florida’s Tampa campus.
