Presented by California Theatre Center. Recall the Grimm Brothers' moral tale of promises made and promises broken. A poor miller tries to impress the royal cousin by boasting untruthfully that his beautiful daughter can turn straw into gold. When the girl is locked in a room with a spinning wheel and some straw to accomplish this task, a strange little man appears and entices the young maiden to promise him her first-born child if he assists her. Later, he returns to claim the baby in fulfillment of their bargain, but is undone by his own ego. Recommended for grades K-5. May 16.
