“Into the Woods” is the Tony Award-winning musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine that intertwines the plots of several fairy tales and follows them to their unnatural conclusions. A young maiden called Cinderella, an abstracted boy named Jack, his mother, the giant he upsets, a childless baker and his wife, Rapunzel, a couple of princes, a witch, Little Red Riding Hood, and the wolf all find themselves in the woods, where they are forced to face their fears, and learn a few lessons along the way. It is recommended for pre-teens and above.

This is the international symbol for hearing accessibility for the hearing impaired. It tells the public that this place is equipped to assist those with hearing loss to communicate.
