Rapunzel—it’s more than just a fairy tale.

Children’s show for ages 6-12.  An inspiring rendition of a traditional story.  Beijing Playhouse’s first ever educational children’s show. 

"Rapunzel, Rapunzel, let down your hair, so that I may climb the golden stair," says the village boy to Rapunzel up in the high tower.  But will Rapunzel be allowed to see him?  An inspiring coming of age story that explores the changing relationship between children and their parents.
