Anybody who saw the Creation Theatre Company’s Christmas entertainment given at the Cowley Mini-plant in the Mirror Tent last year will be keenly looking forward to this one. And they will not be disappointed.
Once again, the company has taken a traditional story and turned it into a high-spirited medley of mime, dance, music, acrobatics, comedy, fantasy costumes and special effects of sound and lighting. The music has been specially written by Jack Merivale for the script by Annie Siddons. The result is very special. Boldly mixing old and new, princes and clowns, puppetry and trapdoor surprises, this is more than a play, more than a show, more than just another pantomime: it is a creative theatrical event, and truly magical. http://www.oxfordprospect.co.uk/Rapunzel,-or,-The-Magic-Pig,.html
