LOWGROUND - A MUSICAL RETELLING OF GRIMMS RAPUNZEL
Written By: Casey Thomson
Directed By: Casey Thomson
Lowground is an exciting new work presented in an hour of musical theatre that turns Grimm’s Rapunzel into a beautiful, yet dark, folk opera with a medieval sensibility.
Written and produced by Adelaide songwriter Casey Thomson, Lowground features Thomson’s finely crafted original score and haunting songs played by a live ensemble of well-known musicians drawn from the baroque, classical, folk and contemporary music scenes. Emma Woolcock on violin and cello, Dee Trewartha on guitar, Kerryn Schofield on flute and Shaun Doddy on Percussion.
Adelaide singer/songwriter Courtney Robb as Rapunzel is a complex and contemporary Princess, while Jonathan Crouch brings an inimitable impish skulduggery to his role as the show’s narrator, The Fool. Thomson strikes a perfect balance as the wicked but ultimately vulnerable Witch, with Kacey Guy Stevenson making his theatrical debut as the winsome Prince.
