Walpole Children’s Theatre Inc.,Presents: Rapunzel, written by Karen Boettcher-Tate and Directed by Jess McNamara
In this debut production for Walpole Children’s Theatre, 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 Glumpwarts, the witch terrorizes Walt into promising a future child as a gift in exchange for his freedom. Jump ahead many years to the child, Rapunzel’s, birthday. The witch and the Glumpwarts show up as promised and whisk the poor, innocent young lady away to a tower in the dark forest. From here, a boisterously entertaining rescue attempt begins! Can Prince Llewellyn persevere over the powers of evil? Filled with plenty of action and fresh, hysterical characters (such as the Sages, Knights and Jesters) this show gives a new twist to an old story and a gentle message about the nature of beauty.
Suitable for any age. Runtime is approximately 75 minutes and there will be a 15 minute intermission with concessions.
