This Easter it’s time to join in the fun at The Royal Hippodrome Theatre’s all-new family production of Rapunzel Rocks.

Rapunzel has all the best traditions of a fairytale, but with a new twist and written especially for the whole family to enjoy, starring the side-splitting Ant Payne as Silly Billy, hilarious Tom Swift as Joey the Jester, and a full supporting professional cast to take you on an action-packed journey of betrayal and false accusations.

But in the end the tangled tale unravels to reach a happy-ever-after finale when love conquers all.

See Jimmy Burton-Iles bring to life the Witch Horrorbella who casts a spell on young Rapunzel, locking her away in a tower deep within the woods. But in her bid for freedom she falls in love with the dashing Finn Strider while Joey the Jester and his simple brother, Silly Billy do all they can to locate the princess and return her to her loving father, King Albert played by ‘Robert Pearce’.

There will, of course, be laughs aplenty from Silly Billy the handy man, a gaggle of ghosts hindering the quest to find Rapunzel, and Joey the Jester discovering that his limbs have a life of their own in an hilarious ultra-violet sequence.

Let your hair down at Easter and Rock with Rapunzel; performances on Monday April 3 at 3.30pm and on Tuesday April 4 at 1.30pm.
