by Joy Davis published April 2011


Suitable for All Groups

Price: 6.00

Loosely based on the original Brothers Grimm story this is a very funny traditional family pantomime full of slap stick and silly jokes with great songs, some with rewritten lyrics that specifically suit the plot. "Lots and lots of gloriously silly humour... the laughs just keep coming in this sparkling adaptation. Rumplestiltskin is a very funny, a little bit saucy, includes great songs... and has everything one could want from a panto." - Amateur Stage


King Alfred's coffers are empty (due largely to Chancellor Scrimp helping himself to the ever increasing taxes). He learns of a girl (Marigold) who he mistakenly thinks can turn flax to gold not realising it is only a game she is playing. He throws her in the dungeon and orders her to turn the flax into gold or she will be beheaded. Rumplestiltskin, an evil gnome magically appears and offers to help her in return for her first-born child. She agrees and eventually marries Prince Gerald as reward for doing as she was ordered. When her first son is born Rumplestiltskin reappears to take the child. However he is persuaded to let her keep her son if anyone can guess his name. Among those who are sent round the kingdom are the Knights of the Square Table. Will they be successful? What do you think!
