Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale
On the edge of glory, the evil lady Za Za determines to rule the Kingdom by keeping the beautiful princess Rapunzel - with the long, long, long hair - trapped in a tower in the deep, dark, dank, dismal, dreary forest.
It’ll be up to Sir Roderick - who is without a worthy quest - and his hairdresser friend Edgar - who is on a quest to find the perfect head of hair - to rescue Rapunzel and restore the Kingdom... With the help of a slightly neurotic gypsy woman (isn't there one in every fairy tale?) and a tired, yet witty, old dragon named Socrates who has lost his poof!
In this hilarious fairy tale adventure, princess Rapunzel may indeed find a way to escape the tower and take her rightful place as the ruler of the Kingdom - she will surely find a way inside your heart!
Fun for the whole family, with a score that ranges in style from pop to country. Shown in repertory with Guys and Dolls.
A JT Premiere! Third Annual Alumni Edition Show! Recommended all ages.
