Golden (a Grimm's Faerie Tale)

“We drove two hours from Pittsburgh to see our first Talespinner show, and it's definitely not going to be our last! The show enthralled my kids (6, 4, and 2), and had my husband and I cracking up as well...I can't put into words what a wonderful afternoon we had at Talespinner!”

When a golden creature promises a poor husband and wife riches, they discover that all that glitters is not necessarily gold! Two golden twins, two golden horses, two golden lillies, a witch, and a comic romp make up this tale of what it means to find the REAL riches in life. Part Grimm's Faerie Tale, part Commedia, and ALL fun, this sparkling tale of loyalty, friendship, and family will have you on the edge of your seat.
