Rumpelstiltskin Brings Gold to Burra

Rumpelstiltskin and his friends will make their way to Burra on Friday July 21, as Country Arts SA brings the stage production to the big screen.

Presented by Windmill Theatre Co and State Theatre Company South Australia, the theatre show is Directed and created by Rosemary Myers and Julianne O’Brien, based on the tales by the Brothers Grimm.

The story is outlined by Country Arts SA: “Spinning straw into gold is a party trick that will take you far. It can buy you a big house full of beautiful things, a wardrobe of designer clothes and a life of total luxury, but money, as they say, can’t buy you…

Two people, once best friends, torn apart by desire for the things they cannot have. This is the story of the ultimate price of greed.

The exquisitely mercurial Paul Capsis stars as a shape-shifting imp whose thirst for vengeance may well bring him undone.

He joins the team that brought you award winning Pinocchio, as they take on a new and equally fantastic fairytale, with their unique brand of theatrical spectacular, rocking music and supreme silliness.

Full of twists and turns, it’s a whole new spin on a heart of gold.”

Tickets are $10, available for purchase at Burra Stationers, over the phone on 8892 2057, or online.

The performance will bring Burra Town Hall to life on Friday July 21, from 2pm (doors open at 1.30pm).
