Let your hair down in this charming new musical by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman (How I Became A Pirate). The evil enchantress Lady Za Za has banished Princess Rapunzel to the deep, dark, dank, dismal, dreary forest in an effort to rule the kingdom herself. It is up to handsome Sir Roderick and his hairdressing side-kick Edgar to restore the kingdom as they also search for true love and a perfect head of hair.

Will they find everything they are looking for in Princess Rapunzel? With a dragon who’s lost his poof, a neurotic gypsy woman and a magical cast of characters, this hilarious twist on the classic fairy tale will delight princes and princesses of all ages.

“Rapunzel! Rapunzel! A Very Hairy Fairy Tale” is a colorful and genially zany musical that will delight the kids and charm the parents as well. With an appealing pop-rock score by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman, this musical adaptation of the Rapunzel fairy tale is full of lighthearted hilarity, keeping the proceedings broad and frolicsome. Children will enjoy the musical’s gentle merriment. The inside jokes directed at theater and fairy tales, meanwhile, will likely beguile the adults. Winning! A perfect storybook atmosphere.” (PAUL HYDE / Arts Writer, Greenville Online)

“…It’s all a very – not too scary – over the top – yet most necessary – somewhat ‘Grimm’ – but not too contrary – hairy, fairy tale!”

Ticket prices for RAPUNZEL! RAPUNZEL! are $12 for Adults and $10 for Seniors and $8 for Children. General admission tickets will be available at the State Theatre Box Office at 105 West State Street, online at or by calling (607) 277-8283. Light refreshments will be available at the performance. This show is a part of the Tompkins Trust Company and CSP Management Family Series.
