Additional time info:

TriHealth Performance Hall

Rose must spin straw into gold to save her father! With the help of a strange little creature, she does the impossible, but she could lose everything if she can’t guess his name. This musical adaptation is sure to delight audiences of all ages!

Times: 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.


Spinning Wheel Craft Time
SWATH Design Studio

When Rose spins the wheel, the straw she feeds in becomes beautiful gold. When we spin this Spin Wheel art, a plain piece of paper becomes a masterpiece! Secure your paper and grab the handle repeatedly to spin it. While it turns, drop a few drips of paint onto the paper. The centripetal force causes the paint to splay out, making a unique design. What kind of art can you make? Do the colors mix?

Times: 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.


Rumpel Romp! Dance Activity
Theater Lobby

Madcap’s “Rumpelstiltskin” is full of lots of fun characters that move very differently! Rumpelstiltskin is light and lithe, while the Crazy Lady takes big, thundering steps! Join us as we explore how movement can help describe a character and learn the choreography to one of the songs from the show!

Times: 11 a.m., Noon and 1 p.m.
