‘Into the Woods’ outside

University of Texas Permian Basin Music Department presents the musical “Into the Woods” at 8 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday and Sunday in the Mesa Courtyard on the college campus.

Frank Eychaner, an associate professor in the university’s music program, said there are 18 people in the cast.

Eychaner said “Into the Woods,” with music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, is loosely based around some Grimm Fairy Tales that Sondheim has knit together to create a moral tale about the ambiguity of the decisions we make every day.

But despite its serious sound nature, Eychaner assures that it’s funny.
