Many years ago a husband was caring for his ill and pregnant wife when a wicked witch offered him a deal. She said she would make his wife feel better if they gave her their unborn child. With his wife struggling to cope the husband had no choice but to accept the witches offer. The Witch named the child Rapunzel and kept her prisoner is a tall tower where she would live alone for eternity. Now, sixteen years later Rapunzel is a beautiful young girl desperate to see the outside world! What will happen when a handsome young Prince discovers her tower and tries to set her free? Find out in The Colour House Theatre’s re-telling of this Brothers Grimm classic and discover that all is not what it seems...
