Cousin Camp, Rapunzel

Tuesday morning's cousin camp event was a trip to Charlotte's Pease Auditorium to see Rapunzel.  Pop-Pop got us front row seats and we all enjoyed this really fun show. was a little scary for Lia but she had her Daddy's lap to crawl into when the witch and her henchmen made their appearance.


From the CPCC website:
"It's time to let your hair down, have a little fun," chimes the company in the opening number of this fresh, vivacious musical adaptation of a popular tale. Rene Shwartzbuckle sings to her husband, Walt, about her zany obsession for a turnip-like vegetable called "rapunzel." After spotting a delectable patch of the plant in Witch Izwitch's garden, Rene sends Walt to "borrow" some. The irritated witch has her malicious henchmen, the Glumpwarts, terrorize Walt. In fear, he promises to give his firstborn child to the witch in exchange for his own freedom. Your audiences are then taken many years ahead to visit the beautiful Shwartzbuckle child... Rapunzel. (Now you know where the name comes from!) It's our heroine's 18th birthday, and Witch Izwitch follows through with her promise and places poor Rapunzel alone in a tower. From here, an exuberant, amusing rescue attempt begins! Can Prince Llewellyn persevere over the powers of evil? Will the fresh, hysterical characters (such as the sages Parsley, Rosemary and Thyme) be able to help? And can Rapunzel convince the witch that it's okay to be unique? Filled with an abundant supply of delightful songs like "Just Because You're Different," "I'm a Nut" and, of course, "Let Your Hair Down," this show is zestful entertainment."
