Rumplestilskin

HFCC Play Staged With Dark Tone

Richard Marsh Dearborn Press and Guide December 1992

Children’s shows are supposed to be light, lively entertainment, right? Not necessarily. Most fairy tales, if staged as originally written, are actually scary tales, despite their happy endings.

This is how director Gerry Dzublinski staged “Rumplestitlskin” at Henry Ford Community College. The production, which opened Friday, is not a show where children are going to be laughing uproariously or bouncing n their seats. Instead, youngsters end up spellbound by the dark tale.
