About the Artist

We're excited to share stories of courage and compassion this season as our Resident Touring Company brings the excitement of professional live theatre to you.  We travel throughout NC, SC, and Georgia and can adapt to most non-stage spaces.

Nan so loves her adopted daughter, Rapunzel, that she builds her a wonderful tower to keep her safe from the dangers of the world. As Rapunzel grows, she and Nan argue as Rapunzel tests boundaries and seeks independence. Rapunzel wishes to see the world, so Nan builds the tower higher so Rapunzel can see clear to the horizon. One day, Rapunzel meets a young boy named Rafi and as their friendship grows, Rapunzel gains the courage to leave the tower and seek adventure beyond the walls she calls home. Nan, at first afraid that Rapunzel will not return, lets her go, and through her selflessness learns an important lesson of her own.

Themes | Rapunzel focuses on the parent/child relationship as it tests the boundaries of love, trust, perseverance and independence.
