Rapunzel & The Tower of Doom

by Theatre of Widdershins

theatre, children-and-family

Tangles, splits ends.. we've all had a bad hair day - but nothing compares to having a witch climb up your locks!!!

about the production

Tangles? Split Ends? Frizzy? Flyaway? It’s hard enough having a bad hair day but pity poor Rapunzel spending her life in a tower with a wicked old witch using her captive’s locks as a step ladder! What sort of damage is that going to do to your hair? Theatre of Widdershins have taken this Grimm tale right back to its dark roots, teased out the tangles and styled it into a beautifully coiffured hair piece! This enchanting show promises plenty of body, volume and loads of highlights. Make an appointment to see the show today
