Rapunzel - Untangling The Truth
15th December 2023 to 14th January 2024
The Masque is excited to present a fun-filled, whacky pantomime reimagining of the beloved fairytale, Rapunzel!
Following in the footsteps of our previous fairytale outings of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel is set to rewrite the narrative and have a lot of fun while doing it. We all know the story - a young princess kidnapped by the wicked witch Gothel is hidden away in a tower in the forest. The only way in is to climb her exceptionally long hair. The only world she's ever known is the tower, so chaos is bound to ensue when she escapes with the help of Ryder.
Meanwhile, the queen has her hands full with the royal family. Her daughter wants to run the kingdom one day, but that's not the traditional way things are done. The artist formerly known as prince, the queen's son, doesn't want the responsibility, but the queen is determined for him to find a bride and settle down - ready to take over as king one day.
Containing hit songs like Don't Stop Me Now, One Way or Another, Flowers, and musical classics such as Go the Distance and Mother Knows Best - this fun-filled musical romp has something for everyone!
Fairy Parade at all Matinees!
Dress up welcomed, littlies are invited on to the stage at the end of the show to meet Rapunzel, the royal family, Ryder, Mother Gothel and Lady Daphne.
