Rumplestiltskin plays name game at Corn Hall

Who says panto is just for Christmas? Rumplestiltskin is coming to Cirencester for summertime fun on Tuesday 8th August.

The Panto Company brings two action- packed performances to the Corn Hall – at 11am and 2pm.
In the show, greedy baker, Pru Blossom, boasts to the King that her daughter can spin straw into gold. Of course this can’t be done, but poor Daisy Blossom is locked in the stables to try and create the precious metal. If she doesn’t, she and her mother will be banished from the kingdom.
During the night, a strange little man - Rumplestiltskin - enters the stables and offers to help Daisy spin the straw into gold. The King is delighted with the result, and insists upon more. But will the odd little man return? And how can Charlie the stable boy and Grub the King’s food taster help when Rumplestiltskin’s demands grow ever greater?
CDC Events Officer Rik Husdan said: “The pantomime is packed with songs, colourful costumes, comedy and huge audience participation. It’s a sure winner for all the family!”
With original songs, stunning sets, and incredible costumes – Rumplestiltskin will delight young and old alike.
There will be two performances on Tuesday 8th August at 11am and at 2pm. Tickets are priced at £6 for adults; £4.50 for children and £19 for a family ticket (Two adults and two children OR One adult and three children). They are available from Cirencester Tourist Information on 01285 654180 or Swindon visitor information Centre on 01793 530328.
