The MDT student cast helped devise and write the music for the show
The fractured fairy tale is based on MDT alum Liesl Shurtliff’s New York Times bestselling novel and follows a young Rumpelstiltskin as he explores a fantastical world of spells, curses and magical creatures and learns about his own unique abilities — and his famous name.
“I think that people enjoy stories like this,” said MDT major and cast member Calee Gardner. “Early on in the rehearsal process, we talked about oral storytelling traditions and how those develop and are useful in our modern society. This play is intended for young audiences, but adults will enjoy how creative it is in the retelling of a familiar story.”
