Cast: 4m., 1w. (5m. Or w. possible additional chorus.) The kingdom of Wipple is in big trouble. Inflation has destroyed the economy—there's no more gold! An ambitious miller claims that his "miraculous" daughter can actually weave straw into gold, which she is ordered to do immediately on pain of death. She is saved from this cruel fate by the mysterious arrival of a funny little man who actually can perform this miracle, but for a high price. He demands her first-born child. This delightful story based on the Grimm Brothers' fairy tale and the English "Tom Tit Tot" tells how the miller's daughter saves herself from this devilish bargain by discovering the little man's unusual name. She is helped in her quest by zany members of the court, as well as the audience itself. There are charming songs, lots of laughs and a happy ending that includes the little man's redemption by allowing him to remain on as godfather to the new "Prince Charming." Fun for the whole family with clever, simple, special effects that are fully explained. Unit set. Approximate Running Time: 65 minutes.
