January 6-22, 2012
Rumpelstiltskin
Book & Lyrics by Stan Gill
Music by Cindy Bright

The miller is so proud of his daughter’s spinning ability he boldly tells everyone that she can spin straw into gold. The King overhears and decides to keep the miller’s daughter for himself.  Locked in a stone room, the miller’s daughter despairs until a little, mysterious man appears and strikes a bargain she can’t refuse.  Enjoy this classic tale of magic, music and wit as our heroine outsmarts the villain.

He also moonlights as the President of the Board of Directors here at SSR.
