Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale (Original)
Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale (Original)
Book, Music and Lyrics By Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman

Visit an enchanted fairy tale land with dragons, a handsome prince, an evil would-be Queen, a really great hair stylist, and that famous princess with the long, long, long hair! Hold on to your hair and prepare for a brand new magical musical re-telling of the classic fairy tale! On the edge of glory, the evil Lady Za Za determines to rule the kingdom by keeping the beautiful Princess Rapunzel - with the long, long, long hair - trapped in a tower in the deep, dark, dank, dismal, dreary forest. It’ll be up to Sir Roderick and his hair stylist friend Edgar (who is on a quest to find the perfect head of hair) to rescue Princess Rapunzel and restore the kingdom - with the help of a slightly neurotic Gypsy Woman - isn't there one in every fairy tale? and a tired, yet witty, old dragon named Socrates - who has lost his poof!

Suggested Audience Age Range: Ages 4 and Up
Running Time: 1 hour, Optional Intermission

  • Quotes

"Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale” is a colorful and genially zany musical that will delight the kids and charm the parents as well. With an appealing pop-rock score by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman, this musical adaptation of the Rapunzel fairy tale is full of lighthearted hilarity, keeping the proceedings broad and frolicsome. Children will enjoy the musical's gentle merriment. The inside jokes directed at theater and fairy tales, meanwhile, will likely beguile the adults. Winning! A perfect storybook atmosphere."

— Paul Hyde, Arts Writer, Greenville Online, April 25, 2013

"Just saw this show yesterday at Casa Manana Theatre. First time I took my daughter to a play or musical and she absolutely adored it. She can't wait to come back to see another. I thoroughly enjoyed it, too! Very good musical for kids - she kept glued to the stage the whole time and laughed and clapped throughout!"

— Melanie K. , A Happy Online Mom, April 23, 2013
“Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale" is recommended for children 4 and older. Adults will enjoy it as well with a clever script that’s full of fun pop culture references. …take some time to relax with the family, and enjoy this hair-larious update of a familiar fairy tale." — Cathy O’Neal, Theater Jones, September 24, 2014
“The musical by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman kept a young crowd enthralled with its clever take on a familiar story.  The melodies are tuneful… it’s a silly, fractured fairy tale, but there’s a lot of charm…” — Nancy Churnin, Dallas News, September 30, 2014
