Recommended for middle schools.
Once upon a time, there was a young girl named Tilda who lived with her sisters deep in the forest in the kingdom of Galiared. Tilda loved nothing more than to daydream while spinning her wool. Enter an odd little elfin by the name of… wait for it… Rumpelstiltskin. Spotting the lovely Tilda, he began to hatch a plan to make her his wife. So when he ran into the royal hunting party, he informed Queen Beatrice that there was a young girl who lived in the forest who could spin straw into gold. Needless to say, the gold-bedazzled Queen was eager to get her hands on some. Tilda was hauled into the castle and commanded to do the impossible task of spinning straw into gold. In desperation, she accepted the aid of a strange little man with magical abilities, but in return, must marry him. The only way out of this predicament was for Tilda to guess the tongue-twisting name of the little imp. The centerpiece of this lighthearted and inventive tale is the fabulous score by Armando Perez.

I love this show! I had so much fun playing Queen Beatrice. The fairies, sisters, and royal court are some of the best characters, besides of course Rumpelstiltskin. The music is awesome! I love the happy ending this show has. Thank you for making this such a great show!

“Rumpelstiltskin” was my son’s first performance when he advanced into the older students’ theater class. He was thrilled to learn that he was cast as the title character. The role stretched him considerably. He learned many skills that he continues to hone as a high school theater student. The script is great fun and suitably magical, as all fairy tales must be.
