IN a reimagining of the story of Rapunzel, ‘The Girl with Incredibly Long Hair’ is unforgettable experience for the whole family.

With performances in both English and Welsh, ‘The Girl with Incredibly Long Hair’ is an ambitious and immersive theatre production at Theatr Clwyd for children aged four and up, from Welsh theatre company We Made This.

With cast members Tonya Smith, Owen Alun and Lara Catrin, families are invited to join Rapunzel, her Mam, and her new friend Daf as they set off on an adventure to the heart of the forest and be immersed in its sights, sounds and smells, with the story unfolding all around the audience.

Director Matt Ball said: “The show grew out of conversations about the bedtime stories we read our children. It frustrated us that, in the 21st century, so many children's books still have a very old-fashioned view of the world.

“How many stories have a Princess waiting to be saved by Prince or a girl who likes sparkly dresses and a boy who gets muddy?

“Out of these discussions, ‘The Girl with an Incredibly Long Hair’ was born as a reimagining of Rapunzel, where she doesn’t need to be saved by the prince. It is the kind of show we want our own kids to see.”

Matt added that this year the production will be performing a Welsh language version of the show, so that the reimagined version of Rapunzel can be enjoyed regardless of language.

He said: “We can’t wait to share this story with young audiences and their families in across Wales this Spring.”

‘The Girl with Incredibly Long Hair’ can be seen at Theatr Clwyd from Thursday May 23 until Saturday May 25.

English performances will take place on Thursday and Friday at 4.30pm, as well as 10.30am on Saturday.

Welsh performances will take place on Friday at 10.30am as well as 1.30pm on Saturday.
