Theatre: Trumpelstiltskin

From Save the Date: A fairy tale gets Trumped: "Trumpelstiltskin" opens July 7 at Occidental College by Christopher Yee:
Most everyone knows the classic tale of Rumpelstiltskin: An ordinary girl is forced to spin straw into gold, a dwarf shows up to make it happen, and the girl must guess the dwarf’s name or forfeit her first-born child. However, what if that scheming dwarf had the cunning and business acumen of one Donald Trump?

The Occidental College Children’s Theater in Eagle Rock plans to explore that possibility in their next production, “Trumpelstiltskin,” a comedy that debuts on Thursday July 7. The play will run Thursdays through Saturdays at 10 a.m. from July 7 to August 20 at Occidental College’s outdoor Remsen Bird Hillside Theater.

Well, I admit that is one play on the name that I didn't anticipate...
