Opening Night Fun
The opening night of Rapunzel! is Friday September 19. All royal guests will be greeted in the Wyly Garden by our Knight and Princess Ponies and have a chance to pet and take pictures with them so the audience is encouraged to dress in their finest finery. Opening night activities will include creating a family crest; posing as Rapunzel, the Dragon Socrates, or both; taking a turn on the All-Star Puppet Theater and learning more from our community partner, Locks of Love. Of course, there is face painting and mini-cupcakes thanks to our friends at Sprinkles Cupcakes.
