A new spin on a Brothers Grimm classic! After her father tells a lie, the miller’s daughter finds herself in over her head with the stakes (and the straw) piled high. With limited choices, she attempts to save herself their way until at last she recognizes her own ability to problem solve and determine her fate. Exploring themes of integrity, self reliance, and resiliency, this play with music will captivate and inspire young minds to think beyond limitations.


Special thanks goes to the Kentucky Foundation for Women for supporting the development of this new musical, the Ogle Center at IU Southeast, Louisville Metro Government, Duke Energy Foundation, Bales Foundation, and all the other community partners who brought this original musical production to young people across Louisville and Southern Indiana.
