RUMPLESTILTSKIN REVISITED

July 22 – 26

By Guy J Jackson

When poor, sweet Lilie’s Pappa accidentally bumps into the Queen he is so star-struck he tells her majesty that his daughter can bake pies into diamonds, sweep dust into silk and spin straw into gold.  

In the castle Lilie meets Rumpelstiltskin, a crooked, rude, overgrown infant of a fellow busying himself with pilfering food and vandalizing the queen’s castle. He reluctantly agrees to use his magic powers to help Lilie, but their budding friendship is put to the test by Rumpelstiltskin’s greediness. 

BIGGER THAN LIFE

July 10 – 24

By Cynthia Mercati

Tall tales, folktales, talking tales, whoppers, windies, stretchers — whatever you call them, America’s legends come to life on the Maples Rep stage.  When P.T. Barnum arrives in town, the master showman presents a knee slappin’, foot stompin’, rip roarin’ show, as some of the best loved characters in American folklore show us their stories.  Be prepared to be amused, amazed, astounded, edified and infinitely entertained.
