In its most ambitious production to date, the Chesapeake Arts Center has mounted the world premiere of a fairy tale musical called Rumpelstiltskin's Daughter. It's a show that aspires to be a sort of a stylistic cross between Disney's Beauty and the Beast and Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods. Maryland-based librettist/director Robert Neal Marshall and New York songwriter Tim Battle have based the musical on Diane Stanley's children's book of the same name, fleshing the tale out with new characters and subplots, in addition to songs and dances.

This summer the folks at Bay Theatre are realizing their long-held goal of presenting a children's show during these normally dark theater months. Since the beginning of June, a delightful production of Will Bartlett's musical, "Rumple Who?" has played to enthusiastic, multigenerational audiences at Saturday and Sunday matinee performances. A whimsical favorite of Bay's founder and artistic director, Janet Luby, who was cast in the off-off-Broadway production about 20 years ago, "Rumple Who" is a gentle, upbeat musical adaptation of the familiar fairy tale "Rumpelstiltskin" that continues a long, successful run at New York's 13th Street Repertory Company.

Rumpelstiltskin is a fairy tale about a little man who spins straw into gold, and local director/librettist Robert Neal Marshall hopes his new musical, Rumpelstiltskin's Daughter, will turn out to be artistic as well as box office gold. The musical is making its world premiere Nov. 8 at the Chesapeake Arts Center in Brooklyn Park followed by a three-week run. Adapted from a children's book of the same name by Diane Stanley, Rumpelstiltskin's Daughter has a score by New York composer Tim Battle, who co-wrote the lyrics with Marshall.

According to the Brothers Grimm, Rumpelstiltskin was a troll who reveled in the fact that no one knew his name. Four decades ago, a musical about the nasty little fellow had a short-lived tenure off-Broadway, disappearing so thoroughly that today no one remembers its name (for the record, it was "Half-Past Wednesday"). Well, almost no one. Pumpkin Theatre has unearthed the show, trimmed it down to an hour and retitled it simply "Rumpelstiltskin." With its fairy-tale plot, supporting cast of cute youngsters and cheery scenery and costumes, director/choreo- grapher Todd Pearthree's production is likely to please the children who make up most of Pumpkin's audience.

"I enjoyed reading 'Rumpelstiltskin' by the Grimm Brothers. It was about a miller's daughter who became queen and gave birth to a baby. But before that happened, she had to spin straw into gold! Along came a troll who agreed to spin straw into gold. Later the queen had to guess his name to avoid a disaster. The good queen guessed the troll's name and the royal family lived happily ever after."-- Willis Zhang, Jacksonville Elementary" 'I'm a Princess' by Kirsten Hall is my favorite book because it is about a little girl who pretends to be a princess.
