Bristol’s "Rumpelstiltskin" Opens March 13, Kicks Off 50th Season
fairy tale with lots of twists features a cast and crew of 40 for three
weekends in the Theatre Bristol ARTspace
Tennessee/Virginia, February 2015 - Theatre Bristol is proud to open its 50th anniversary
season with the classic fairy tale "Rumpelstiltskin" on March 13 and
running for three weekends in the ARTspace Theatre, 506 State Street, Bristol,
Once upon a time there was a dwarf named Rumpels... wait,
you probably know that part already. This reimagining of the classic fairy tale
features two strong-willed sisters: Anya, shy and romantic, and Ingrid,
outspoken and sensible. When their widowed mother is once again victim to the
judgments of others, she tells a tiny lie -- Anya can turn straw into gold.
Soon, the story "spins" out of control when the King believes Anya is
the reason their nation is out of money and demands she perform her special
skill for the royal coffers. Mix in magical companions, mistaken identities, a
short villain, and princess wannabes -- is this a recipe for disaster? Or
happily ever after?
