Rumpelstiltskin | State Theatre Company & Windmill Theatre | 11-30 Oct 2016


World Premier of Rumpelstiltskin based on the tales by the Brothers Grimm

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 creative team that spun theatrical gold with the Helpmann Award winning Pinocchio, which took the Big Apple by storm after rocking Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney. Rosemary Myers, Julianne O’Brien, Jethro Woodward and Jonathon Oxlade take on a new and equally fantastic fairytale, with their unique brand of theatrical spectacular, pumping music, extravagant performance and supreme silliness.

Full of twists and turns, it’s a whole new musical spin on a heart of gold for ages 8–108.

“Paul Capsis is magical… He utterly owns the stage, and captivates with every utterance, spoken or sung”
