Rapunzel    is a witty, tongue-in-cheek, one hour musical retelling of a perennial favorite that gives us a possessive mother who happens to be a witch, a tentative young man who happens to be a prince, and a strong-willed but naïve young girl with the longest hair you’re ever likely to come across. Designed with an appeal to young and adult audiences alike, the play has a contemporary moral about parent-child relationships, the challenges of growing up (for both children and adults), the joys of love, and challenges of being different.  With a book and lyrics by two creators of the hit television show "Friends," rest assured this fairy tale isn't going to be business as usual! Doors open at 6:30pm Tickets: $12
