In this twist on the classic fairy tale, Rapunzel is snatched from her parents on the night of her birth by the evil witch who lives next door and is raised in a tower for sixteen years. The beautiful young woman finds her prince, but he turns out to be quite different than she expected; he is her twin brother! Together, they defeat the witch and are reunited with their true parents.
"In addition to the comedy, children will enjoy Michael Walter's pop score." -The New York Times"Michael Walter's tuneful music relays the message of endurance and love conveyed by (Kristin) Walter's lyrics."-Off-Off Broadway Review
Rapunzel was originally produced by the celebrated and critically-acclaimed Manhattan Children's Theatre.
