Verona residents Kevin Ohlweiler and Marsha Shreier have leading roles in a musical that opens on Saturday in West Orange.

The two will be performing in Into The Woods, Stephen Sondheim’s take on what might happen if the wishes in fairy tales really did come true. It’s an interesting exploration of actions and consequences, and it contains several now classic Sondheim songs, like “Children Will Listen”.

Shreier has the role of The Witch (Bernadette Peters in the original Broadway production), while Ohlweiler plays The Steward. The performance takes place through the auspices of the New Jersey Arts Incubator at the Oskar Schindler Performing Arts Center (OSPAC).
