This Christmas Season, the Rhumbelow Theatre hides a secret.  Come on down to deepest, darkest Umbilo where a host of characters await. You’ll meet a greedy King and his evil wife, the Queen, her vicious pet crow, and their son the Prince; as well as the much drinking, foolish- talking Miller and his beautiful daughter; and a host of other village characters. Not forgetting the strange creature that lives in the woods, singing to himself in the dead of night.

Join Clare Mortimer, Rowan Bartlett and Mthokozisi Zulu daily as they take you through the woods and back, armed with masks and puppets, to bring you the tale of Rumpelstiltskin! The show includes a short Christmas decoration-making workshop to clear the cobwebs of creativity.

Rumpelstiltskin runs until December 22 at Rhumbelow Theatre in Umbilo. Running time is 60 minutes and then there is a short break followed by the workshop. The show is suitable ages 3 to 300!

Tickets R70. Book at Computicket or contact Roland on 082 499 8636 or email or visit Check the website for show times

The show runs in conjunction with Criss Cross Christmas - see Hot dogs on sale between shows if you are booked for both shows on the same day.
