9:30 AM & 12:30 PM
(Suggested for Grades K-6)

The approximate runtime for this production is 75 minutes. Our goal is always to keep performances no longer than 2 hours because of transportation issues for schools; at times this may mean a show needs to be abbreviated. More information will be shared as it becomes available.

Join "master" storytellers, Miny and Moe, as they explore the classic tale of "Rumpa-Whosa-Whatsa"—that is, "Rumpelstiltskin"—but with a twist. As Miny narrates the story, Moe keeps interrupting and inserting the character of a ninja into the story. This annoys Miny, who insists there are no ninjas in "Rumpelstiltskin," but Moe thinks ninjas always make stories better! This hilarious, interactive show is perfect for young audiences, and children are encouraged to participate in the fun. 

"Rumpelstiltskin" is a German fairy tale ("Rumpelstilzchen") that was first published by the Brothers Grimm in their 1812 collection of stories, Children's and Household Tales. The story is well-known throughout the world, particularly in Europe. The meaning of the name "Rumpelstiltskin" varies, and the character is sometimes described as a dwarf. In German, "rumpelstilt" or "rumpelstilz" means goblin, whereas "Rumpelgeist" is a type of poltergeist, a mischievous ghost or spirit that moves household objects.
