The cast features 30 kids aged six to 14. The show will be held at Danville High School’s Gravely Hall. Show dates are April 12, 13, and 14 at 3 p.m., with an additional showing on April 13 at 7 p.m.

“Rehearsals are going very well,” said Opening Act Artistic Director and Founder Emma Steberl. “The kids are ready for the challenge. ‘Into the Woods’ is a super challenging show and they are all doing amazing. We have a really good mix of new students and those who are coming back.”

The next show will be “Finding Nemo Kids” with a weeklong theater summer camp for kindergarten through fifth grade. Kids will learn all aspects of working in theater both on and off stage.
