Here's a copy of the press release to local papers......

On a high mountain, at the end of the forest, where the fox and hare bid each other good-night, lives Rumpelstiltskin, a funny little man with the power to spin straw into gold! Children of all ages are invited to meet this whimsical fellow, and see him work his magic when UW-Manitowoc’s Continuing Education Department presents “Rumpelstiltskin”, an imagination play, 7 P.M. Thursday, August 12, and 1:30 and 3:30 Saturday, August 14.

Chuck Allger, Laurie Magyar, Corrie Skubal, and Scott Zahn, all seasoned Heart-A-Rama performers, along with Rick Oswald, an audience favorite from UW-Manitowoc’s productions of “The Taffetas” and “Honky Tonk Angels” have assembled to enact the traditional tale of the miller’s daughter who must spin straw into gold or suffer the consequences.

Children from the audience will be selected randomly to fill the roles of the king’s pages, and to act as assistant to Glady, the storyteller who must keep the miller from fainting from hunger.

The cast will be available for photos with children after each performance.

Kathy Palmer, Director of Continuing Education is the producer, Bev Denor is director, and Chris Lochmann is tech coordinator. Dawn Dabek, Maddie Hansen, Rich Hanke, Cindy Oswald, Arlo Temme, and Kris Zahn provide additional show support.

Tickets cost is $5.00 for adults and $2.00 for children under 12. They are available at the University of Wisconsin-Manitowoc (683.4782) and at LaDeDa Books & Beans, 1624 New York Ave (684.7745). Profits from the show support Continuing Education theatre offerings and programming for children.

Thanks for stopping by and reading my little commercial. I hope you can make it to the show. You could make the weekend of the 12th a full out theatre weekend. Catch Peter Quince' "The Pajama Game" and Tome Drill's Showtime 2010. can get to all three! Such fun!

What am I reading? I just dug into T.C. Boyle's short sotry collection called Wild Child.
