"Setting Off" Song

Go To

"Into the woods, to get the thing
That makes it worth the journeying..."
Chorus, Into the Woods, "Prologue"

The characters in the story are all rearing and ready to go! They need something to keep their spirits up, something to heighten the moment: A MUSICAL NUMBER! This is the number that everyone sings when they set off on their adventure. A "let's get ready and go" kind of number. Something jaunty and fun.
