West Windsor, N.J. – As part of the Kelsey Kids Series, the timeless, tangled tale of "Rapunzel" is coming to Mercer County Community College’s (MCCC's) Kelsey Theatre. The award-winning Kaleidoscope Theatre presents a magically fun musical adaptation of the famous fairytale Saturday, Feb. 23 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Kelsey Theatre is located on the college's West Windsor Campus, 1200 Old Trenton Road.
Poor Rapunzel is locked in a tower by a bumbling witch. The only way in is by climbing up her beautiful and extremely long hair, which a brave prince is willing to do – and then find a way out for them both with the help of the audience. Lovely, lively songs add to a mood of enchantment and romance as Rapunzel meets her true love and escapes her tower prison.
Based in Rhode Island, the award-winning Kaleidoscope Theatre is a professional touring company that has been entertaining family audiences since 1977. In addition to light-hearted fairytales, Kaleidoscope shows also incorporate serious themes of drug prevention, teen pregnancy, divorce, and disability. Young actors with disabilities are strongly encouraged to participate, and each production contains important messages with the recurring theme that "we are all special."
