"Rumpelstiltskin" centers around an overprotective Miller who refuses to let his young daughter help with any work. Despite her rare beauty, she is helpless when it comes to the mundane chores of everyday life. In an attempt to defend his daughter’s uselessness, the Miller makes the mistake of falsely proclaiming that his daughter can spin straw into gold. Meanwhile, the Kingdom is in a predicament when the King suddenly dies leaving the young prince to inherit the throne. As the years progress, the wealth of the kingdom is squandered on frivolous expenses, and the young prince quickly turned king, finds himself at odds with his subjects. All that remains in the treasure rooms of the palace are piles upon piles of straw. The King, in dire need of wealth, seeks the assistance of the Miller’s daughter. He believes her to be capable of returning him to his affluent state by turning his piles of straw into gold. The story concludes with the characters facing life-altering decisions, broken promises, and an array of mysterious events. Themes include the power of friendship, the destructive nature of vanity and greed, and the value of forgiveness.

Vintage Theatre presents "A Song for Coretta" By Pearl Cleage Directed by Pat Payne and "Letters" Directed by Mark Brenche March 28 - May 4 On February 6, 2006, people began lining up at dawn outside of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church to pay their respects to the late Mrs. Coretta Scott King, widow of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose body lay in state in the small sanctuary. People of all ages stood patiently for hours, waiting to say goodbye. Sometimes they murmured to each other quietly. Sometimes they shared memories of Mrs. King’s extraordinary life and expressed sorrow at her passing. When a cold rain began to fall at sunset, those who had thought to bring umbrellas shared them with those whose resolve was the only thing not dampened by the drizzle. At close to midnight, the crowd had dwindled to a determined few. The five fictional characters in this play are at the end of that long line of mourners.
