Abstract: The purpose of this thesis is to analyze the script, produce the play, and evaluate the production of Rumpelstiltskin by Charlotte Chorpenning, adapted for the Theatre for Young People Professional Repertory Touring Company for the tour of 1975. The play was produced in the Raymond W. Taylor Theatre at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, January 26 through February 2, 1975. The tour extended throughout many North Carolina public schools from February 4 to April 2, 1975. Chapter I of this thesis tells of the selection and cutting process as the director dealt with Charlotte Chorpenning's original script of Rumpelstiltskin. The Chapter also shows the director's philosophy of child drama as shown in the design concepts and character analysis. Chapter II is a manuscript of Rumpelstiltskin as the script was produced including the director's notes, blocking, and photographs. Chapter III consists of the director's analysis of the production. Included in the Appendix are newspaper reviews, as well as a copy of the program, and a teacher's study guide as presented to the tour schools.
