Rumpelstiltskin Schools Tour

Throughout December we are taking Rumpelstiltskin on tour to primary schools across the High Peak and we would love you to book this magical modern classic for your school. 

Through this 50-minute play, we meet 
A girl who just has to exaggerate….
A Prince who just has to have more gold… 
An Unusual Little Person who just can’t help helping…. 
…. but wants a lot in return!

Rumpelstiltskin by Robin Kingsland will ignite imaginations in this lively and accessible retelling of a traditional tale, using poetry, music and characterisation. This play explores, truth, kindness, and the importance of good friends!

Additional Resources

In addition to the performance itself, we will also offer a free workshop tailored to the age of the audience, in line with the National Curriculum.  Furthermore, we will send out online resources for teachers to further explore the language, themes and ideas in the production with their class.

Technical Information

To facilitate the production all we need is space which is 5m x 5m for our performance, plus room for the audience! If you work at a small school, please get in touch to let us know, as we can adapt our performance to fit much smaller spaces, provided we know at the time of booking. We bring everything else.

We will require approximately an hour to set up and 30–45 minutes to clear away.
