Trina Hutchinson used several characters, settings, and props from Into the Woods in her mash-up of Sondheim elements to face off against Brent Birley's Webberites in the virtual world.

The Woods themselves were a key setting in the first round of the Sondheim-Webber battle, with The Wolf, The Witch, and Jack being among the Sondhead champions.
