Rene Shwartzbuckle has an obsession for a turnip-like vegetable called rapunzel. After spotting a delectable patch of the plant in Witch Izwitch’s garden, Rene sends her husband to "borrow" some. When the witch has her malicious henchmen terrorize him, he agrees to give his firstborn child to the witch in exchange for unlimited amounts of the plant.
Sixteen years later, the child, a daughter named, you guessed it, Rapunzel, has been placed in a tower, destined to be rescued in the children’s musical play, “Let Your Hair Down Rapunzel,” presented by Flagler College’s Children’s Musical Theatre class.
“We make a point of selecting shows that appeal to the child in all of us, “ says director Phyllis Gibbs. “We hope everyone will be entertained.”
The play will be presented at 7 p.m. Nov. 9 and 2 p.m. Nov. 10-11 in the Lewis Auditorium at Flagler College, 14 Granada St. in St. Augustine.
Tickets are $10 and $5 for children. A special Tea Party with the characters will be held after the Nov. 10 performance by reservation only. Tickets to the performance and Tea Party are $20 for adults and $10 for children. For more info, call 904-819-6217.
