Alberta Opera presents Rumpelstiltskin
Posted on April 21st, 2015
April at Central wouldn't be complete without a performance from Alberta Opera. Two years ago we were thrilled with "Sleeping Beauty", last year we loved "Aladdin" and this year it was a delightful adaptation of "Rumpelstiltskin".
Life was perfect for the Millers - a perfect family, a perfect house, and a perfect job - until. . . Mr. Miller lost his job for working too hard. The bank showed up shortly after to take EVERYTHING, including Mr. Miller's pants, unless the family came up with $15000. That is when Mrs. Miller was chosen to play on a game show called "Spin To Win". With hopes of winning all the money, there is just one last question to answer. . What is the real name of that game show host?
With just 3 actors and a musician, Alberta Opera pulled off elaborate costume changes to create several characters. Student actors also joined the show as henchman and assistants to complete the cast. Once again, a very professional and entertaining production.
