Watch: Rumpelstiltskin

Where? Oak Ridge Playhouse / 227 Broadway Ave. Oak Ridge 

After a father falsely boasts about his daughter’s ability to spin straw into gold, a greedy king orders the girl to either perform the feat for him or lose her head. Luckily, an odd little old man with magical powers appears and promises to spin the gold on her behalf. In exchange, however, he demands a steep price: her first born child. Fearful of being exposed, she accepts the odd man’s offer and is saved from death. But when the time comes to pay her debt, she regrets her decision and begs to keep her baby. The old man agrees, but with one condition — in order to keep her child, she must, in just three days time, guess the mysterious man’s even more mysterious name! For young audiences.
