Stiltz the Musical-Lacey-Stiltz
A Modern Rumplestiltskin, reminiscent of the “Rumplestiltskin” classic, features Lacey as the damsel in distress.  In three separate days, she is imprisoned in Office Number Seven by the evil Mr. Devlin and ordered to raise money to save her dad, a well-meaning dreamer whose ill-fated schemes have placed them in Devlin’s clutches.  Lacey is saved, it seems, by a mesmerizing computer whiz, who raises the funds to save dear old dad.  In return, Lacey must sacrifice her heirloom jewelry, an emerald ring and antique cameo.  All seems lost when the computer whiz, Stiltz, returns to claim Lacey for his bride. How will she escape her pact with Stilts and win the heart of the man she truly loves?  Like the young woman in the “Rumplestiltskin” tale, she must expose Stiltz’s true identity to save her future.

STILTZ can be performed with 7 actors-with double cast and additional chorus members for a larger troupe.
