This weekend, a silly production of the classic fairytale “Rapuzel” opens at Maple Leaf’s Northwest Puppet Center, 9123 15th Ave. N.E.
The show by Paul Mesner Puppets is described as:
This is a veggie wonderful story of two gardeners, Okra and Romaine, who have a beautiful daughter named Rapunzel. But not all is well, Romaine had promised his first-born child to an evil witch! Rapunzel is locked up in a tower and her future looks bleak until the Prince Arrives. Rapunzel hatches a plan to escape her evil captor and , as with most fairy tales, they all leaf happily ever alfalfa!
