In the story, the evil enchantress Lady Za Za has banished Princess Rapunzel to the deep, dark, dank, dismal, dreary forest in an effort to rule the kingdom herself. It is up to handsome Sir Roderick and his hairdressing sidekick, Edgar, to restore the kingdom as they also search for true love and a perfect head of hair. Will they find everything they are looking for in Princess Rapunzel?
With a dragon who's lost his poof, a neurotic gypsy woman and a magical cast of characters, this hilarious twist on the classic fairy tale will delight ages 5 and up.
A downloadable study guide is available at www.artpark.net to bring the fun into the classroom before and after attending the performance.
