To say the talent is strong among teachers and employees in the Carson City School District would be an understatement. Within the local Broadway production of “Into the Woods,” three Carson City teachers retain lead roles including Darby Beckwith, drama teacher at Carson High School, as Cinderella; Tara Rispin, science teacher at Eagle Valley Middle School, as Little Red Riding Hood; and Lynette Gardner, American literature, Honors English and AVID IV teacher at Carson High School, as Jack's mother from “Jack and the Beanstalk.”
The musical production, a partnership between Sierra School of Performing Arts and Reno Little Theater, just finished shows at the Bartley Ranch amphitheater. Going into September, it will then move to Reno Little Theater for a handful of dates and then to the Brewery Arts Center from Sept. 16 to 18 in Carson City.
The story follows a baker and his wife who wish to have a child; Cinderella, who wishes to attend the King's Festival; and Jack, who wishes his cow would give milk. When the baker and his wife learn that they cannot have a child because of a witch’s curse, the two set off on a journey to break the curse. Everyone’s wish is granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
