See ‘Rapunzel’ For Free Friday, May 8, at the Cheyenne Civic Center
Are you hoping to get out of the house on Friday night?
You won't even have to let your hair down or pay admission to see a production of 'Rapunzel' at the Cheyenne Civic Center on Friday, May 8, starting at 6:30 p.m.
The Phamaly Theater Company out of Denver is bringing this family-friendly musical version of the Grimm Fairy Tale to downtown Cheyenne for a free performance. The one-hour long witty, tongue-in-cheek show begins at 6:30 on Friday night, May 8, at the Cheyenne Civic Center.
This will be the first year that the Phamaly Theater Company has ventured into Wyoming. The troupe began in 2012 with a traveling production of 'Cyrano' and visits many schools and theaters across Colorado each year.
The classic story tells of a possessive Mother, who happens to be a witch, a tentative young man who happens to be a prince and a strong-willed but naive young girl with the longest hair you've ever probably seen. The play explores the parent-child relationship, the joys of growing up (for children and their parents), the joys of love and the challenges of being different.
The musical is based on a book with lyrics written by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, they were the producers of the TV series 'Friends.' The show is designed to appeal to both children and adults.
See the cast list and watch a video highlight from the show at the Phamaly Theatre website. 'Rapunzel' is being directed by Bryce Alexander.
Let down your hair and take in some free theatre at the beautiful Cheyenne Civic Center downtown at 2101 O'Neil.
