This weekend, you have a chance to go "Into the Woods."

The Western Plains Opera invites folks to come and watch their rendition of the timeless story.

For some members of the cast, putting on this production is something they've always wanted to do. The Western Plains Opera combines the best professional, community and student talent in the Magic City all on one stage. But for their rendition of "Into the Woods," they have a special guest running the show.

“This show has been a bucket list show for me, meaning I've wanted to be a part of it in one way shape or form since it's been written,” said Julie Wright Costa, stage director.

As voice area head at the University of Utah, she now gets the chance to pass on her knowledge to Minot State students.

“These students here at Minot State University are incredible, as well as the members of the community, and I get to work with all of them,” Wright Costa said.

Her pupils say they appreciate the chance to learn from her.

“She's taught me a lot about character development and I think that's a really big take away that I've had from this show,” said Kaylee Capp, actress playing the witch.

These actors and actresses say performing in "Into the Woods" is an experience they'll never forget.

There are three performances over the weekend starting Friday. You can find out more about how purchase tickets by following this link:
