ROCKPORT — The Riley School has announced their Musical Theater performance of Rumplestilskin the R-Dawg, Hip-Hop Minstrel, Thursday Dec. 13, at 6:30 p.m.
Produced by special arrangement with Brooklyn Publishers, LLC, Rumplestilskin starring the Middle and Upper School children, is directed by Deborah Fournier, with set production by Lindsay Powers and assistance from her Production Class.
In this fairy tale with a modern flair, Rumplestilskin desperately wants to be a hip-hop star. If only his overbearing mother and bratty sister, Rumplina, would give him some peace to work on his rhymes, life would be great.
Meanwhile, Jack, of the beanstalk fame, has squandered all his money on bad investments in hopes of inventing the folding chair and impressing Stacy, the beautiful young storyteller in the village. Stacy finds her own trouble when her father tells the obnoxious Prince that she is able to spin straw into gold!
See how all the characters come together!
The performance will open with a presentation of The Night Before Christmas by Clement Clark Moore, starring the Lower School children.
This event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome.
Doors open at 6:20 p.m. Location: The Theater at the Riley School, 73 Warrenton St., Rockport.
