Walpole Children's Theatre is thrilled to announce our upcoming production of Rapunzel, written by Karen Boettcher-Tate and Directed by Jess McNamara
Performances will be held February 24 through March 4, 2023 at Walpole Footlighters Playhouse
All rehearsals and performances will be in-person. The show is around 90 minutes, with a cast size of approximately 20.
Children aged 10-20 are welcome to audition. No experience required and no fees to participate! Walpole Children's Theatre has been putting on high quality shows since 1969. Theatre is a great way for kids to gain confidence, develop their public speaking skills, and put on best-in-class performances!
We are holding auditions in-person, but we encourage auditionees to register beforehand.
Rene Shwartzbuckle is cuckoo for a turnip-like vegetable called rapunzel. When she spots a mouth-watering patch of the plant in Witch Izwitch’s garden, she sends her husband Walt out to ’borrow’ some. Witch Izwitch is certainly not amused! With her diabolical henchmen, the Glumpwarts, she terrorizes Walt into promising her his firstborn child in exchange for his freedom. We then jump ahead many years to Rapunzel (now you know where the name comes from!) Shwartzbuckle’s 18th birthday. The witch and the Glumpwarts show up as promised and whisk poor, innocent Rapunzel away to a tower in the forest. From here, a boisterously entertaining rescue attempt begins! (The technical aspects of ’hair climbing’ are handled quite simply.) Can Prince Llewellyn persevere over the powers of evil? Filled with plenty of action and fresh, hysterical characters (such as the sages Parsley, Rosemary and Thyme!), this show gives a new twist to an old story and a gentle message about the nature of beauty.
When: Saturday November 19, 2022 at 11am
