Classic fairy tales are woven together to create a magical spell of enchanting songs — as well as a poignant lesson about community responsibility and the stories we tell our children — in Stephen Sondheim's and James Lapine's "Into the Woods."

Camelot Theatre Company's Summer Conservatory will present performances of the Tony Award-winning fairy tales of a darker hue at the new James Morrison Collier Theatre Building, 101 Talent Ave., Talent. Shows are set for 7 p.m. Thursday, July 28, 2 and 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, July 29-30, and 2 p.m. Sunday, July 31.

The production is the culmination of a six-week summer conservatory program for ages 7 through 17.

The story begins when a baker and his wife journey into the woods on a quest to lift a witch's curse. They cross paths with a menagerie of fairy-tale characters such as Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Jack the Giant. The pursuits of each become tangled in mysterious ways and reveal what happens after "happily ever after." Songs include "On the Steps of the Palace," "Giants in the Sky," "Last Midnight" and "Children Will Listen."

Rebecca Campbell directs and choreographs the Camelot production.

Tickets cost $12, $7 for students, and are available at the theater's box office. Call 541-535-5250 or see www.camelottheatre.org.
