Rapunzel

Book By: Ryzuk and Ryzuk
Play #: 6501
Cast: 3 m, 3 w, 2-6 flexible

This musical version of "Rapunzel" is abundant with rich humor. When the old Witch catches the farmer stealing from her tantalizing garden, she allows him to escape her wrath only when he promises to give her his firstborn child. Thinking his wife is barren, he agrees. But soon after, Rapunzel is born and the Witch imprisons the child in a tower to protect her. She grows into a beautiful young woman. When a handsome prince, who is followed everywhere by his "loyal entourage," woos Rapunzel, the Witch is devastated and throws a wild tantrum...until she is saved by a Warlock who promises they can have their own child. The luminous music and lyrics are beautifully accessible to children yet sophisticated enough to charm the most discerning adult palate. From the joyous opening, "What's a Fairy Tale?" to the amusing "Prince of a Guy" and "Let Down Your Hair," this musical shines to the happy ending, even for the Witch!

Behind The Scenes

MARY RYZUK AND REGAN RYZUK

TALK ABOUT "RAPUNZEL"

 

Q.: WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS MUSICAL?

A.: Both of us believe that children today are sophisticated enough to absorb good music, good stories and good lyrics. We wanted very much to create theatre that shows children the respect they deserve.

 

Q.: WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE PARTS IN THE MUSICAL?

A.: Our favorite part is when the Witch realizes that her "magic" does not work when confronted with the "power of love."

 

Q.: WHERE DO THE CHARACTERS COME FROM?

A.: The characters all come from the tales of the Brothers Grimm with some creative additions, most notably, the Prince's "Entourage."

 

Q.: IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD?

A.: Only that we are privileged and delighted to be able to share with a wider audience a play that has given so much joy.
