LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Hillary Clinton will play the offstage role of the Giant in a production of Stephen Sondheim's 'Into The Woods' in her onetime home state of Arkansas, the Arkansas Repertory Theatre announced on Monday.

'Real news, and I'm really excited! Check out the production if you're in Little Rock,' Clinton tweeted and her spokesperson confirmed to The Associated Press. Clinton was the first lady of Arkansas before she was the first lady of the United States, a senator representing New York, secretary of state and then presidential candidate.

 

The 'Into The Woods' Giant is the vengeful widow of the giant who Jack killed after climbing the beanstalk. The Giant does not appear on stage, and the voice part is usually prerecorded.

The show runs April 19 to May 15.

Clinton has previously had cameo roles in the television shows 'Madam Secretary' and 'Murphy Brown.'
