The three-week Auburn Ave Kids Summer Theater Camp culminates in the final production of "Into the Woods, Jr."

The shows take place at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, as well as 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Auburn Avenue Theater.

Come and see what these kids can do with some of Sondheim's hardest work.

"Into the Woods, Jr." features all the classic fairytail characters. Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack (and his beanstalk), The Witch and the lonely Baker and his Wife. And as each of their stories go, they yearn for better lives for themselves. But life doesn't always give us happy endings. Will each of these characters be able to make their own wishes come true?

Auburn Ave Kids showcases local, regional and national acts and touring presentations with an emphasis on audiences ages four through 12 and their parents.
