Photo Flash: Meet the Star of Orlando Shakespeare Theater's RAPUNZEL, Beg. Tonight

June 19
12:30 AM 2014

Orlando Shakespeare Theater in Partnership with UCF presents a hilarious retelling of the classic fairy tale Rapunzel from tonight, June 19 - July 27, 2014. Scroll down for photos of Jayne Claire as Rapunzel!

Based on the story by The Brothers Grimm, Orlando Shakes actor/playwright Brandon Roberts returns with another family-friendly adaptation after past summer hits Sleeping Beauty (2013) and Cinderella (2012). Complete with a brave princess, a clueless king, and a magical plunger, audiences of all ages will enjoy this silly production, presented in the intimate Goldman Theater.

An evil enchantress forces a young couple to give up their beloved baby girl forever. The witch shuts her away in a lonely tower, but as Rapunzel grows -- so does her long golden hair! Will brave Rapunzel ever escape the clutches of her evil captor? Find out in this playful adaptation with an Orlando Shakes twist!

Rapunzel features actors Jayne Claire (as Rapunzel), Will Hagaman, Amanda Leakey, and Jeffrey Todd Parrott. The Orlando Shakes production team includes Director Brad DePlanche, Set Designer Kurt Bippert, Lighting Designer Holly Stallard, Costume Designer Denise R. Warner, and Sound Designer George Hamrah.

Single tickets to Rapunzel ($9 - $15) can be purchased by calling (407) 447-1700, online at www.orlandoshakes.org, or in person at the John and Rita Lowndes Shakespeare Center, 812 E. Rollins St. For more information, follow Orlando Shakes on Facebook (www.facebook.com/orlandoshakes) and Twitter (www.twitter.com/orlandoshakes).
