March 17 – April 1

This dramatization of the classic fairy tale closely follows the original tale as told by the Brother Grimm.  Among the charms of Rapunzel at Sol Children Theatre is the close relationship between cast and the children in the audience … the children love it, and so do the actors as they hear the excited voices and happy faces of their young admirers.

Rapunzel is an abused child.  She isn’t starved or beaten; in fact shoe has everything a young girl could want…except freedom and friends.  A witch takes baby Rapunzel from her parents and – to protect her from the evils of the world – locks her in a beautiful tower and gives her every luxury as she grows up.  But the tower has no door.  When the witch wants to visit, she calls: Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair,” and the long braid tumbles down so the witch can climb up.  A handsome prince overhears the ritual, calls out the words, climbs up, and rescues her in spite of a hilarious dragon who is supposed to guard her.
