"This is a fairy tale that has been jazzed up to the nines...the actors expertly bounced off the audience’s energy the whole way through...Rapunzel is definitely a feel-good fairy-tale bonanza, a winner of a production"
"It has an entertaining charm that elevates it into the higher bracket of half-term hilarity...Will your children enjoy this show? Yes, and so will you...Families will leave with a spring in their step and a song in their heart"
"Bewitching...a fluid, fast-paced and engaging show, that doesn’t waste a second...Immersion’s artistic director James Tobias is at the helm for this show and he knows his (young) market...75 minutes of pure fun. It’s enchanting"

Immersion Theatre are thrilled to present the UK PREMIERE of this witty, tongue-in-cheek retelling of a perennial favourite which gives us a possessive mother who happens to be a witch, a tentative young man who happens to be a prince and a strong-willed but naïve young girl with the longest hair you’re ever likely to come across! With a book and lyrics by the creators of the hit television show Friends, rest assured this fairy tale isn’t going to be business as usual! Get TANGLED in this glittering gem of theatrical goodness.
