Based on the Classic Brothers Grimm fairytale, Rumpelstiltskin will be given a magical MAC twist to deliver a spectacular live show. Suitable for the whole family Rumpelstiltskin is packed with humour, live music and spectacular action. Follow the feisty Emily as she tries to outwit the greatest trickster of them all – Rumpelstiltskin. .

Starring a stellar cast that features local actors Doireann McKenna (as Emily); Jo Donnelly (as Rumpelstiltskin); Michael Lavery (as the King); alongside Tom Giles (as the Miller).

Speaking on this year’s Christmas programme and the production of Rumpelstiltskin, Anne McReynolds, Chief Executive of the MAC said: “The anticipation is building as the cast start their rehearsals this week. It is a fantastic family show based on the traditional fairy tale that families will love, but brought bang up to date full of sassy humour and modern day references.

“At the MAC, we aim to excite the imagination of visitors of all ages which is why we go all out at Christmas by creating our special free activities like the fairytale forest, our family room and the Christmas window. I encourage new families who have never been before to come along and unlock the magic at the MAC this Christmas.”

Alongside Rumpelstiltskin, the MAC, will have a whole host of family festive events running throughout November and December. From Christmas-inspired baby sensory workshops, storytelling and family sing-alongs to the free fairy tale forest for little fairies to explore.
