More on Rumpelstiltskin by Tears of Joy Theatre, by Sharon Whitney
He’s quick. He’s sly. He’s fantastic—in a scary sort of way. Can you guess his name? It’s Rumpelstiltskin! 

Award-winning playwright Sharon Whitney made her debut with Tears of Joy Theatre with this production. While respecting the tradition of the classic story, she adapted the tale for a modern context. In the original version by the Brothers Grimm, the central female figure is not even given a name. The heroine in this production not only has a name, Lola, but also manages to solve her own problems. Tears of Joy Theatre’s puppets bring the miller and his daughter, the king and the mysterious Rumpelstiltskin to life.

The Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to nurture all of the arts in the community through programs and events, arts education, advocacy, and support for artists and arts organizations. Please visit us online for more information.
