Description

Join our cast of young aspiring actors from the area for our dress rehearsal and/or performance of Rapunzel, a fractured fairytale, adapted by Karen Boettcher-Tate. A fairy tale is one type of story under the heading of folk tales. So, what is a fractured fairy tale? It is a fairy or other folk tale that has been modified in such a way as to make us laugh at an unexpected characterization, plot development or contrary point of view.

DRESS REHEARSAL: Thursday March 1 at 6:30pm

PERFORMANCE: Friday March 2 at 6:30pm

This is the first performance that Engine's Children's Theater will perform for the community. Please come out and support these wonderful youngsters.

ABOUT RAPUNZEL, A FRACTURED FAIRYTALE

Rene Shwartzbuckle is cuckoo for a turnip-like vegetable called rapunzel. When she spots a mouth-watering patch of the plant in Witch Izwitch’s garden, she sends her husband Walt out to ’borrow’ some. Witch Izwitch is certainly not amused! With her diabolical henchmen, the Glumpwarts, she terrorizes Walt into promising her his firstborn child in exchange for his freedom. We then jump ahead many years to Rapunzel (now you know where the name comes from!) Shwartzbuckle’s 18th birthday. The witch and the Glumpwarts show up as promised and whisk poor, innocent Rapunzel away to a tower in the forest. From here, a boisterously entertaining rescue attempt begins! (The technical aspects of ’hair climbing’ are handled quite simply.) Can Prince Llewellyn persevere over the powers of evil? Filled with plenty of action and fresh, hysterical characters (such as the sages Parsley, Rosemary and Thyme!), this show gives a new twist to an old story and a gentle message about the nature of beauty.
