Marin Theatre Stages RAPUNZEL, Now thru Nov 10
Marin Theatre Company (part of MTC's Theater Series for Young Audiences) presents Rapunzel, adapted by Mike Kenny, based on The Brothers Grimm fairy tale. Directed by Daunielle Rasmussen, the show runs tonight, November 2-10, 2013.
Rapunzel has been sheltered away by her overprotective grandmother. How will she ever escape her lonely tower and face the challenge of growing up? Don't miss this clever, playful update of the Grimm fairy tale that focuses on Rapunzel taking risks and overcoming fear rather than being the subject of a witch's petty grudges and a prince's daring deeds.

In 2013, Marin Theatre Company launched its first theater series for young audiences. Featuring five productions in MTC's 99-seat Lieberman Theatre and 231-seat Boyer Theatre, the season includes four Bay Area Children's Theatre productions - The Cat in the Hat, A Year with Frog and Toad, Mercy Watson to the Rescue and Ladybug Girl and Bumblebee Boy, the Musical - and an MTC production of Rapunzel. Previously, MTC partnered with BACT to present seven sold out performances of BACT's Ivy + Bean, the Musical, which was also performed at Freight and Salvage Coffee House in Berkeley and Front Row Theater in San Ramon.
