Stevens Puppets Presents Rumpelstiltskin
Saturday, July 13, 11 a.m.
Rumplestiltskin is a fast paced, action filled, rhyming rendition of the classic tale, following the Miller as he weaves a web of lies to convince the King that his daughter can spin straw into gold. Couple that with the Stevens Puppets touch of humor and authenticity and you get one of the most highly rated, happily pleasing marionette programs ever. This is a part of Goat on a Boat at Bay Street Theater.
