1. Maritime Marionettes breathes life into an ageless folktale as magically as straw is spun into gold. Rumpelstiltskin is the tale of a poor miller’s daughter who becomes trapped in her father’s lie: that she can spin straw into gold.
The 50-minute performance on Saturday is filled with colour, magic and excitement; from the appearance of Rumpelstiltskin to his incredible demise. 2.
