Theisen Students Present Rumpelstiltskin Private Eye
Watch a witty fairytale spoof about a Fairytale Land crime as Theisen Middle School presents Rumpelstiltskin Private Eye by Todd Wallinger. A clever private investigator, Rumplestiltskin (played by Derek Rosenthal), along with his “wise-quacking” partner, Ugly Duckling (Cole Peters), are sought out by Mama Bear (Chloe Tarrant) and Papa Bear (Raferty Todd) to solve some wacky crimes. Missing porridge, broken chairs, and a slippery slipper seem to be the only clues. Something punny is definitely going on. These two super sleuths have a lot of help along the way from Goldilocks (Sophie Kovacs), Red Riding Hood (Evalynn Phommathep), Baby Bear (Abe Flood), Big Bad Wolf (Joe Gutzmann), Virginia Wolf (Lauren Behnke), Cinderella (Maisey Wihlelms), and many more. Watch as these characters amuse their audiences with their hilarious roles and one-liners.
The play is directed by Linda Gribben and will be performed on March 4 at 7:00 p.m. and on March 5 at 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. March 5 at the Theisen auditorium. The cost is $4.00 for adults and $2.00 for students. Children five and under are free. Tickets are available at the door.
