"...it's all a very - not too scary - over the top - yet most necessary - somewhat 'Grimm' - but not too contrary - hairy, fairy tale!"
Hold on to your hair and prepare for a brand new magical musical re-telling of the classic fairy tale!
On the edge of glory, the evil Lady Za Za determines to rule the kingdom by keeping the beautiful princess Rapunzel - with the long, long, long hair - trapped in a tower in the deep, dark, dank, dismal, dreary forest.
It’ll be up to Sir Roderick - who is without a worthy quest - and his hairdresser friend Edgar - who is on a quest to find the perfect head of hair - to rescue Rapunzel and restore the kingdom - with the help of a slightly neurotic Gypsy Woman (isn't there one in every fairy tale?) and a tired, yet witty, old dragon named Socrates (who has lost his poof)!
In this hilarious fairy tale adventure, Princess Rapunzel may indeed find a way to escape the tower and take her rightful place as the ruler of the kingdom - she will surely find a way inside your heart!
Fun for the whole family with a score that ranges in style from pop to country!

Oh I wish that I could fly away, far beyond the forest trees! Maybe catch a skybird by the tail, sailing on the ocean breeze..." - Rapunzel
