A young couple is thrilled to be expecting their first child—but then they run afoul of a wicked witch, who forces them to give up their baby girl. She names the child Rapunzel, and locks her away in a tower to guard her from the world. As Rapunzel grows up—and her hair grows long—in her multi-story prison, she begins to give up hope of ever leaving. But the fortuitous appearance of a handsome prince and the lack of barbers on the witch's staff combine to throw an immaculately coiffed monkey wrench in the evil one's plans. Adapted by Orlando Shakespeare Theater's resident actor-playwright Brandon Roberts, this family-friendly take on the Brothers Grimm's classic fairy tale finds fresh humor in a beloved story of enchanted abduction and rampant hair-pulling. A meet-and-greet with the actors follows each performance.
Orlando Shakespeare Theater
Although Orlando Shakespeare Theater gets its name from the Bard himself, the ensemble of thespians produces a wide variety of shows. Shakespearean tragedies, comedies, and space operas anchor their season, but newly developed works also make their way onto the bill, as do plays for young audiences. Kids learn how to create their own pieces of theater during summer camps and classes, hosted both offsite and in school.
