An adaptation of the long-haired princess and her climbing suitor, written by the creators of "Friends."
From the Emmy-winning team behind the mega-hit television series, "Friends," comes Rapunzel. A familiar tale with a fantastic new spin, it has all of the charm that you'd expect from the minds that have been making the world laugh non-stop for more than two decades.
Forced to live alone in a tower with nothing but her hair and her witch (literally) of a "mother," Rapunzel's sixteenth birthday has come, meaning that she'll be able to see the outside world for the first time, just as her "mother" promised. Scared to let her go, though, the witch reneges. Lucky for Rapunzel a young Prince named Brian happens across her tower and calls out to her, as he's seen the witch do: "Rapunzel! Rapunzel! Let down your hair!" Before the Prince and Rapunzel have their inevitable "happily ever after," though, they're going to have to face the wrath of the witch and a few other hilarious obstacles.
A small cast size and easy-to-conquer technical demands, Rapunzel is a wonderful choice for any theatre company whose audience is comprised of families. It would be a great show to produce as a small touring production presented to local schools. Bottom line: Rapunzel is a glittering gem of theatrical goodness.
