“You can’t escape The Glades. They come for everyone in the end.”
On an isolated island deep in the heart of the Everglades, five young people struggle to survive in a land where the adults are as dangerous as the gators. When they devise a plan to escape, they are forced to grapple with the fear that what they are running to may be worse than what they are running from. This brilliant new play by Laura Schellhardt begs the question: what is the current generation’s responsibility to the next, and what happens if we fail them?
Ever in the Glades is produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois.

Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s exhilarating, funny, magical, and harrowing play is about wishes and longing, witches and giants, being lost and being found. Winner of three Tony Awards, including best book and best score, Into the Woods is a “delicious spin on Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, and other fairy tales.” But its wisdom, its dazzling wit, and its glowing melodies take it far beyond those childhood tales. Join us for our 2020 take on this Sondheim classic.
Into the Woods is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International, www.MTIshows.com.
