Little Theatre of Owatonna has announced the cast for its summer production of “Frumpled Fairy Tales” by William Springer.
Puns and pratfalls abound in this fun, frumpled 35-minute version of three Grimm fairy tales. And with the help of a narrator, the audience can cheer the heroes and boo the villains. In “Rumpelstiltskin,” a greedy king, a miller’s daughter and a comical chap named Rumpelstiltskin all mix together in the story of gold spinning and name guessing. In “Rapunzel,” a witch puts lovely Rapunzel in a tower where a handsome prince rescues her. But the standard happy ending is reached in anything but a standard way. In “Red Riding Hood,” Little Red finally escapes the long-winded warnings of her mother only to meet up with a “cool” wolf.
Sarah Friesen is the director with Sandee Hardy Hagen as the technical director.
