Into the Woods

Music by Stephen Sondheim, Book by James Lapine.

October 5-21, 2018
Unanimously lauded by critics and extended twice on Broadway, the Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine works its considerable magic through exhilarating rhymes and a gorgeous score. This modern twist on the Brothers Grimm brings together Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (of beanstalk fame), a Baker, his Wife and a dancing cow. The beloved storybook characters take on startling complexity as they discover that wishes come with a price. Witches, wolves, giants and mysterious strangers force the heroes to face the music and their future in a world where things aren't as simple as "happily ever after."


DTW received 39 nominations for its 2017/2018 season!

Southern Fried Funeral

A Comedy by Osborne and Eppler

September 14-23, 2018
Dewey Frye is dead and the rest of his family is left to pick up the pieces -- that is if they don't kill each other first. Not only does matriarch Dorothy have to contend with sudden widowhood, but she's also faced with church-committee harpy Ozella Meeks sticking her nose in the family business, Dewey's snake-in-the-grass brother making a grab for her house, and two grown daughters reliving their childhood rivalry. Funerals bring out the worst, the best, and the funniest in people, and the Fryes are no exception. A big-hearted comedy about family – Southern-style.

Sound of Music

Character Descriptions:

  • Friedrich von Trapp (Age 14): Proud to be a boy in this family of mostly girls, and an often-absent father.
  • Louisa von Trapp (Age 13): The trickster of the family, full of mischief.
  • Kurt von Trapp (Age 10, some dance): Gentle and a peacemaker. He dances the Laendler with Maria.
  • Brigitta von Trap (Age 9): Smart, reads a lot, always tells the truth, even when it may be inappropriate.
  • Gretl von Trap (Age 6): Very cute, just wants to be loved.


Character Descriptions:

  • Amber Von Tussle: Amber Von Tussle is a prom queen nightmare! She is definitely "The Corny Collins Show" favorite, but she is competitive and has a bad attitude. Amber is a great performer, so cast a young lady who can do it all.
  • Seaweed J. Stubbs: Seaweed J. Stubbs is the object of Penny's affections, and together, they are determined to defy the segregation laws of the 1960s. Seaweed can do it all! This is a great role for an experienced young African-American performer who can sing, dance and act well.​
  • Little Inez: Little Inez Stubbs is Seaweed's little sister. Little Inez gets her moment in the spotlight and is a talented singer and dancer. She tries to audition for the Corny Collins show but is turned away by Velma because she is African-American
  • Esemble
  • Other standout ensemble roles include:Gym Teacher, Cindy Watkins, Matron, Principal, Lorraine, Gilbert, Thad, Duane, Stooie, Beatnik Chick, Male Guard, Guard, Newscaster and Council Members. These roles give more texture to the lively world of 1960s Baltimore. This is truly a story about communities intersecting, so each role is significant to the production.

Love, Sex and the IRS

Character Descriptions:

  • Floyd Spinner: (Age 30–60):
  • Arnold Grunion: (Age 20-80): A shady, shifty street preacher. He is quirky and odd.
