'The less said the better...'

An interview with Maria Langford playing the Witch

How many shows have you done with Simply Theatre?

This is my first Simply show.

Tell me a bit about your character

I’m playing the Witch. She is a powerful magic figure, obsessed with her “daughter” Rapunzel. She sets the quest for the Baker and his wife, but discovers that you do not always get everything you want when your wishes come true.

Did you know much about Into the Woods before you auditioned?

I knew the story and some of the music. It’s a challenging and entertaining piece.

What is your favourite part of the show/song?

I love the contrast between the humorous and the more serious moral aspect of the true story….and the challenging music!

What’s been the best/worst show you’ve been in or the best/worst part you’ve played?

A university production of, ‘Stags and Hens’ - the less said the better!
