Show Summary

Rumplestiltskin is a fast paced, action filled, rhyming rendition of the classic tale, following the Miller as he weaves a web of lies to convince the King that his daughter can spin straw into gold!

Enter the outrageously outspoken and never happy villain, Rumplestiltskin, whose preposterous demands create even more mayhem in the land of Stiltskin.  Top it off with a famous, ground-breaking marionette that “flies to pieces” right before your eyes. Couple that with the Stevens Puppets touch of humor and authenticity and you get one of the most highly rated, happily pleasing programs ever!


Music used in this production was composed by Johann Sebastian Bach.

The spinning wheel music is “Flight of the Bumblebee” composed by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov in 1899–1900.

Show History

Rumplestiltskin debuted in 1964.  It was created for the 1964 Worlds Fair. The show has been a staple in the Stevens Puppets lineup.

In the Spring of 2013, Rumplestiltskin went through an extensive renovation.  All the marionettes were repainted, the costumes fixed or replaced, all new scenery, and a fantastic new digital soundtrack featuring J.S. Bach. The artwork was painstakingly recreated by Zan Raynor and Gnoli Raynor. They did a wonderful job!
