All-of-us Express Children’s Theatre is pleased to present two fantastic shows back-to-back…Rumpelstiltskin and Twelve Dancing Princesses. These beloved children’s tales come to life on stage with more than 50 youth from the mid-Michigan area.

First up is Rumpelstiltskin. A witch tells Rumpelstiltskin that in order to become the most powerful force in the kingdom, he must possess a child of royal birth. He cooks up a scheme to get the kingdom to believe the miller’s daughter can weave straw into gold which will help their impoverished kingdom….you know the rest of the story. After a brief intermission, the show resumes with Twelve Dancing Princesses. This fun story involves a king, twelve dancing princesses, ten princes, a young soldier and an evil prime minister who is plotting to take over the kingdom.

Show dates/times are February 8 and 15 at 7 p.m.; February 9 and 16 at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and February 10 and 17 at 3 p.m. All shows will take place at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center, 819 Abbot Road. Tickets are $10 for adults and $7 for youth. To purchase tickets in advance, call (517) 333-2580, ext. 0 or stop in and see us.
