Weekend: Youtheatre lets its hair down for ‘Rapunzel’

The Arts Partnership of Greater Hancock County invites you to attend Youtheatre’s Summer Performing Arts Camp production of “Rapunzel.” Performances are on July 11 at 7 p.m. and July 12 4 p.m. in the Great Room at First Presbyterian Church, located at 2330 S. Main St., Findlay.
The performances are part of the Missoula Children’s Theatre international touring project and feature over 60 area students in grades 1-12 participating in the Youtheatre’s camp.
“Rapunzel” is an original adaptation of the classic children’s story conceived and written by Michael McGill. The music and lyrics are also by McGill.
The story takes the audience on a frivolous frolic through the French countryside. The ogres garden in the mushroom patch while the corn and potato spies report back to Madame Gothel. Frenchy and his intense friends, the wood elves, do their best to help Rapunzel escape the grasp of Madame Gothel. The lost prince, Rapunzel’s parents, and her friends, the unicorns try to help.
Just when it seems to be safe to cross the bridge, a troll and three billy goats gruff get in the way. It doesn’t help that the three bears (or is it four?) confuse Rapunzel with Goldilocks and chase her through the forest. Add to that the gremlins trying to play tricks on everyone and it is chaos. Well, it’s not that bad because the pixies foil the gremlins’ plans most of the time. In short, Rapunzel and all the rest of the characters tell a silly tale of personal triumph and friendship.
General admission tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students. Tickets may be purchased at The Arts Partnership box office at 618 S. Main St., Findlay. Office hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
In addition, tickets will be available at the door 30 minutes prior to the performances.
