Posted by : Pinoy Screen and Stage Sunday, September 16, 2018
Rediscover a beloved fairytale as REP's Theater for Young Audiences brings you the story of Princess Rapunzel like you've never seen it before in Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale from September 15, 2018 to January 27, 2019 at the OnStage Theater, Greenbelt 1, Makati City.
Twists and turns abound in this musical retelling of the childhood classic, including delightful new characters with their own mysterious stories, intersecting at just the right comical---and heartwarming---moments. Joy Virata directs the colorful cast in this magical world, including an evil would-be queen, a handsome prince, a determined hairstylist, a lovable dragon, and the princess with a famous head of hair.
The story first introduces you to the beautiful, extremely long-haired Princess Rapunzel (Cara Barredo, Mikkie Bradshaw, Justine Narciso, Alyssa Rosa, and Ani Pearl Aquino) as she's kidnapped and trapped inside a tower by the evil lady Za Za (Carla Guevara-Laforteza and Christine Flores) in an attempt to take over the throne.
Meanwhile, Sir Roderick (Hans Eckstein and Andres Borromeo) and his friend Edgar (Steven Hotchkiss, Chino Veguillas, and Kenny Isidoro), who chose beauty school instead of knight training, are on a quest to find the perfect head of hair when they stumble upon the tower. Together with a strange Gypsy Woman (Bituin Escalante and Naths Everett) looking for a powerful piece of jewelry that was stolen from her, and witty, old dragon Socrates (Arnel Carrion, Raymund Concepcion, and Jamie Wilson), they band together to try to rescue Rapunzel and defeat the scheming Za Za.
Based on the story, music, and lyrics by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman, this is one unexpected adventure you definitely shouldn't miss!
