Classic fairytale gets a quirky twist in REP’s Theater for Young Audiences’ latest production, which follows the whimsical adventure of Princess Rapunzel.
The Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale, which premieres on Sept. 15 and will run until Jan. 27, 2019 at the Onstage Theater in Greenbelt 1, Makati, is based on the story, music, and lyrics by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman.
The play opens with the beautiful, extremely long-haired Princess Rapunzel (played by Cara Barredo, Mikkie Bradshaw, Justine Narciso, and Alyssa Rosa) being kidnapped and trapped inside a tower as the evil Lady Za Za (Carla Guevara-Laforteza and Liesl Batucan) tries to seize the entire kingdom and place it under her rule.
While on the quest to find the perfect head of hair, Sir Roderick (Hans Eckstein, Andres Borromeo, and Brendon Banares) and his hairstylist friend Edgar (Steven Hotchkiss, Chino Veguillas, and Kenny Isidro) find their way to the tower in the middle of the dark forest to rescue Rapunzel with the help of a slightly neurotic Gypsy Woman (Bituin Escalante and Naths Everett) and witty, old dragon Socrates (Arnel Carrion, Raymund Concepcion, and Jamie Wilson).
Joy Virata directs the cast of this magical retelling of a classic fairytale.
