What does a horse with a floor length mane, a boy dressed as a pregnant woman, long braided hair, rappers, arugula and asparagus have in common? They’re all part of this weekend’s free theater and dance performance of “Rap-Punzel.”
This modern day version of the fairy tale, directed by UNM-LA adjunct faculty member Melissa Balice, is suitable for younger audiences and open to the public. Shows are at 2 p.m. Saturday at Piñon School in White Rock and at 2 p.m. Sunday at Los Alamos Middle School.
Starstuck Youth Theatre veteran Daniel Sarrao lends his talent as the prince in “Rap-Punzel.” Joseph Sarrao and Wyatt Watson double up their roles in the show as Rapunzel’s parents. Sarrao plays Rapunzel’s “greens-crazed” mother and the prince’s horse. Lydia Kenamond is Rapunzel, while Lily Johnson plays the witch who has protected Rapunzel from the “wicked world” by locking her in the tower. Taran Cooley, Ben Moulton, Emily Moulton and Nicolas Storey are the narrators whose “rap” explains the actions. The play, written by Whitney Ryan Garrity, is presented in modern verse.
Lyrical jazz, ballet and hip-hop dance will add to the entertainment. Jazz is an American art form that is representative of many different cultural influences.
