“Rumpelstiltskin” and “The Wild Party” on stage this July

By on July 10, 2017

RAPA is growing bigger and bigger! Two shows take to the stage this July at the Kodak Center.


This summer families can try to guess the name of a magical little dwarf! RAPA Family Theatre will present Rumpelstiltskin. The show explores a lesson of honesty and courage. As the young princess is forced to spin straw into gold, an evil dwarf provides the gold—but at a terrible price of the royal pair’s first-born child. Aided by a witty Story Teller, and with some help from the audience, the comic Rumpelstiltskin is thwarted!


Andrew Lippa’s The Wild PartyThe Musical, is at the Kodak Center Theatre-in-the-Round in association with the LGBT Giving Circle and the Gay Alliance serving as their annual fundraiser for Broadway Cares: Equity Fights Aids. The show revolves around a gin-soaked debauch at the Manhattan apartment of a vaudeville siren and her abusive lover. The story follows Queenie and Burrs, a showbiz couple surviving a dysfunctional relationship. To break up their boredom they decide to throw an all-night party, inviting their most colorful friends.
