Story by The Brothers Grimm, Adapted by Jack Neary
Directed by Jack Neary, Assistant Director Deirdre Budzyna
RUMPELSTILTSKIN, one of the greatest of all the Brothers Grimm fairy tales, comes to life in this brand new adaptation written by Jack Neary exclusively for the talented young actors in the Acting Out Productions company. In the classic story, the King has learned that the Miller, one of his subjects, has not paid his taxes. The Miller, frightened beyond measure when challenged to pay or else, promises the King that his sister Eliza can spin straw into gold. When the Miller thoughtlessly leaves Eliza at the palace to accomplish the impossible, she encounters a mysterious little man who spins the straw into gold for her—at a price. The little man wants Eliza to give him her first-born child! With nowhere else to turn for help, she agrees. Time passes. The little man comes back to claim his prize, and Eliza must find a way to thwart him and keep her beautiful baby boy. It’s an exciting story with a surprise ending, and, rest assured, there will be plenty of laughs along the way, believe it or not. Audiences who have enjoyed Jack Neary’s adaptations of THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW, SLEEPING BEAUTY, CHICKEN LITTLE, THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE, LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD and many others will absolutely love RUMPELSTILTSKIN!
