Los Altos Stage Company’s “Into the Woods” wraps up Sunday.

Los Altos Stage Company’s holiday-season musical “Into the Woods” is set to run through Sunday at Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave.

What happens after “happily ever after?” Fractured fairy tales of a darker hue provide the context for “Into the Woods,” which deconstructs stories by the Brothers Grimm via “The Twilight Zone.” The main characters come from the classic fairy tales “Cinderella,” “Rapunzel,” “Jack and the Beanstalk” and “Little Red Riding Hood,” and are tied together by a more original story involving a baker and his wife and their quest to begin a family.
