Orlando Shakespeare Theater Kicks Off The Summer With 'Rapunzel'
Playwright Brandon Roberts returns to offer a new twist on another fairy tale favorite
When an expectant couple crosses paths with an evil enchantress, she forces them to give over their beloved baby girl forever. As Rapunzel grows, so does her beauty–and her long golden hair–so the witch shuts her away in a lonely tower where she’ll be safe. But the witch never anticipated that a handsome prince would come wandering through the woods. Will brave Rapunzel ever escape the clutches of her evil captor? Find out in this clever, playful adaptation of the classic fairy tale, with an Orlando Shakes twist!
“Roberts’ new adaptation of Rapunzel is fun for the entire family,” said Director of Education Anne Hering. “The excitement continues after the final bows with a character meet and greet following each performance!”
Rapunzel is best suited for children ages 4+ and their families, and runs approximately 55 minutes with no intermission.
