Good old What's-His-Name
"Rumpelstiltskin" concludes
Family Theatre season May 5

On Sunday, May 5, at 1pm, recall the Brothers Grimm's moral tale of promises made and promises broken: Rumpelstiltskin, the final performance of the spring in our popular Family Theatre series in the charming Carriage House Theatre.

A poor miller boasts that his daughter can turn straw into gold, which of course she can't - until a mysterious man appears and helps her out. But the price is the girl's first-born child, unless she can guess the man's highly unusual name!

Sunnyvale's California Theatre Center brings this famous tale to life on stage in a production that is perfect for kids and fun for parents, too!

Tickets are still available, but don't wait! Purchase yours today by clicking below, or call the Box Office at 408-961-5858 10am-4pm Monday-Friday.
