The tale as old as time, Rapunzel, The Pantomime, not often produced in Australia because well no one has ever written it. But Maria de Marco is about to change all that. Rapunzel is about to be hip again.
The Maiden in the Tower or Rapunzel is taking charge and breaking out of her digs with no door and no stairs. Problem is there are no doors and no stairs and the only way down is her hair. Or can Prince Charming save her? Prince Charming is looking for the maiden with the other glass slipper or is he looking for the maiden in the glass coffin? With all these bachelors on the loose in the woods, how will she decide which is her soulmate for life. Rapunzel, The Pantomime is sure to make this fairy tale your favourite for all time…well at least this month.
