Rapunzel, as you've never seen her before!

Chickenshed is delighted to present Rapunzel in a new and exciting musical version of the well-loved fairy tale. Mysterious, romantic and life-affirming, this will be a dramatic re-telling of a story you thought you knew!

Really wonderful. So impressive.

Rapunzel has little memory of her life before the tower, but yearns to be free. The woods that surround the tower are full of fantastic and astounding creatures – and while Rapunzel’s famous long hair may give her incredible abilities, she learns that her true strength comes from within. Strength which she may need sooner than she thinks, as some unexpected strangers are about to arrive unannounced…!


Featuring Chickenshed's famously large and amazingly diverse cast, this magical, musical and mysterious version of Rapunzel will dazzle and delight children and adults alike.

Simply magical. Very, very professional.
