RUMPELSTILTSKIN // AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL THEATRE LIVE
Saturday November 25 & Sunday November 26 // Westfield Shopping Centre, Event Cinemas, Gympie & Hamilton Rd’s, Chermside
Fun for the whole family and a highly recommended introduction to live theatre from the best seat in the house. One of the folkloreâ€™s great villains in a deliciously wicked spin on a dark and devilish tale! Spinning straw into gold is a party trick that will take you far. But money, as they say, canâ€™t buy you everything.Â This is the story of the ultimate price of greed, two people, once best friends, torn apart by a desire for things they cannot have.Â The exquisitely mercurial Paul Capsis stars as a shape-shifting goblin whose first for vengeance may well bring him undone.
