The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati will bring the world premiere of "Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale" to the Taft Theatre, March 23-25 and 31. Music and Lyrics by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman. The show is being directed by Artistic Director, Angela Powell Walker.
The classic fairy tale of "Rapunzel" comes to life in "an exciting new musical featuring that beautiful princess with the long, long, long hair trapped in the tower, a handsome young suitor who doesn't quite know what he's searching for – of course, an evil witch who has her eye on what should be Rapunzel's kingdom, and a tired, yet philosophical, old dragon who tries to make sense of it all! The 17 foot dragon, known as Socrates, was created for the show by Kevin Frisch of the Frisch Marionette Company, and is the biggest puppet the Company has ever created!"
A charming musical adventure for the whole family – from the writing team that created last season's hit, How I Became a Pirate – "Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale" is ideal for families with children ages 4+.
