Rapunzel: the perfect entertainment for the holidays


Marc Kay and Rowan Bartlett in Rapunzel.

IF you have little ones and are wondering what to do with them in the holidays, then I suggest you head down to the Rhumbelow Theatre in Cunningham Avenue, Umbilo, Durban for the Actors Unemployed Company’s latest offering: Rapunzel.

The show stars Marc Kay, Tessa Tjasink and Rowan Bartlett and is directed by Adam Dore.

This classic fairytale comes to life in spectacular style, with high energy performances from the entire cast. Follow the Prince on his topsy turvy journey to find true love and rescue Rapunzel from the evil clutches of the Wicked Witch. Rapunzel is filled with love, laughter and audience interaction… you’re guaranteed to enjoy the show whether you are eight or 108!

After the show, the AUC will hold a short workshop (included in the ticket price). The workshop portion of Rapunzel will focus on basic performance skills. Participants will learn a little bit about how actors prepare, with a vocal and physical component. It will all culminate in everyone learning some of the choreography from the show and having a blast dancing with the cast of Rapunzel.
