The Witches Minions, a group of hip-hop dancers who work for the witch, were a unique feature of PPCT’s production of Into The Woods last spring. The minions danced to the Witch’s rap, “greens greens,” and, as forest spirits, lurked around the stage to change the sets and bring the characters deeper into the woods. Toward the end of the show, during the Witch’s song “The Last Midnight,” the minions reappeared, creeping around the stage to frighten the main characters, and eventually closing in on the witch as she disappeared with a scream. Their hysterical laughter in this appearance added to the unsettling nature of the Witch’s death. The unique addition of the minions to the show Into The Woods was a hit with Pied Piper fans, who loved not only the dancing, but the costumes, makeup, and stealthy reappearances of these wood spirits.
