Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0876021860, Paperback)

Play script dramatized by Jack Melanos. Intensely dramatic and suspenseful telling of the Rapunzel story. Cast of 3 women, 2 men, 3 amplified voices. Two sets. Fairy tale costumes.

Margot and Otto, rejoicing at the birth of their first baby, are horrified when the child is claimed and taken by a Witch, who needs the baby for her own evil purposes. Rapunzel is brought up in the Witch's care, unaware of her real parentage but retaining enough human instinct to resist the Witch's spells, had earned the love of others who had fallen under the Witch's enchantment. For this she is exiled to a lonely tower, where no one but the Witch may gain admittance, and then only by climbing upon Rapunzel's long hair. A young Prince happens on the scene by accident and learns the secret; but when he tries to rescue Rapunzel, he too falls under the Witch's spell. It requires the greatest courage to gain possession of the Witch's magic chain and find the spell that reduces her to a withered tree.
