Middle School Theatre

2022-23 Show:
Into the Woods
January 13-14, 2023

Note from the Director:

There is a musical called South Pacific by Rodgers and Hammerstein that features the song “You’ve Got to be Carefully Taught” with the following lyrics:

You’ve got to be taught to hate and fear,
You’ve got to be taught from year to year,
It’s got to be drummed in your dear little ear—
You’ve got to be carefully taught!

You’ve got to be taught before it’s too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate—
You’ve got to be carefully taught!

While the above sentiment may sound correct to our ears, the Bible tells us in Genesis 3 the reality of sin brought upon us all from The Fall. We are born sinners and are in need of a Savior. We do not need to be taught to hate or sin. It’s our default reaction to everything.

In comparison, one of the most celebrated songs from Into the Woods is called “Children Will Listen” and this song extends to the listener a very powerful caution:

Children will listen Children will look to you for which way to turnTo learn what to beCareful before you say, listen to meChildren will listen

Into the Woods Jr. teaches about the importance of modeling correct thinking and behavior to our children. Children listen more often with their eyes by watching those around them than they do with their ears. And children often grow to become like those they watch in this world. No one needs to teach a child to sin but children do need to be taught about Jesus, as He is the only hope we have for forgiveness and reconciliation with God!

My sincere hope is that you will enjoy this heartfelt production of Into the Woods Jr. and as you travel through “the woods” of this world, my prayer is that you will remember our savior, Jesus, is the one who does everything for us! May we all turn away from our sin nature and learn to trust in Christ—and may we model to our children His love, His grace, and His forgiveness, for one no is alone.
