Rumpelstiltskin by Northumberland Theatre Company
Friday 16 January 2015 @ 6:30 pm
Rumplestiltskin, the classic fairy-tale by acclaimed Olivier Award winning writer Mike Kenny – performed in NTC’s inimitable style. The story of a boast that becomes a lie! The royal vaults, once full of gold, are now stuffed with straw … the rain won’t stop, the harvest is flattened and people are getting really cheesed off. Forced to do something about his miserable position, the King hears a rumour of a beautiful miller’s daughter with magical powers. Will she be able to achieve his impossible task? If she is to be helped, what will she have to give in return?
‘Straw turns to gold, magic and mayhem are in the air. . . ‘ Wonderful storytelling, humorous yet darkly scary, full of physical comedy, in witty rhyming couplets with songs and music.
“ A perfect fusion of energy, inspiration and wild imagination…. impeccably paced and inventive direction ….truly magical” The Stage
