Rapunzel is a familiar tale with a fantastic new spin. Forced to live in a tower with nothing but her very long locks of hair and her mother – a Witch; Rapunzel’s sixteenth birthday has come and she’ll finally be able to see the outside world for the first time, just as her mother promised. Afraid to let her go, the Witch goes back on her word and keeps Rapunzel locked up in the tower. Lucky for Rapunzel, a young Prince named Brian, comes by her tower and calls out to her as he’s seen the witch do: “Rapunzel, Rapunzel! Let down your hair!” But before the Prince and Rapunzel have their “happily ever after”, they are going to have to face the wrath of the witch and other hilarious obstacles. Rapunzel is a glittering gem of theatrical goodness, great for all ages!
