Performances: July 24th – 2:00 & 4:30pm
Cheney Middle School
825 17th Ave E

Conceived and Written by Michael McGill
Music and Lyrics by Michael McGill

Would it surprise you to know that the story of Rapunzel happened in France? Well it didn’t really, but our story takes you on a frivolous frolic through the French countryside. The Ogres garden in the Mushroom patch while the Corn and Potato spies report back to Madame Gothel. Frenchy and his intense friends, the Wood Elves, do their best to help Rapunzel escape the grasp of Madame Gothel. The lost Prince, Rapunzel’s Parents, and her friends the Unicorns try to help. Just when you think it’s safe to cross the bridge a Troll and Three Billy Goats Gruff get in the way. It doesn’t help that the Three Bears (or is it four) confuse Rapunzel with Goldilocks and chase her through the forest. Add to that the Gremlins trying to play tricks on everyone and you have chaos! Well, it’s not that bad because the Pixies foil the Gremlin’s plans most of the time. In short, Rapunzel and all the rest of the characters tell a silly tale of personal triumph and friendship.

Adults – $5
Children (6-12) – $3
Ages 5 & Under – Free

The Farmers’ Market & Beyond was established in 2007 by the West Fargo Park District. The market provides local growers and food, art and craft artisans an opportunity to display and sell items to the public.

The focus of the market is to provide local growers with the opportunity to bring fresh produce, flowers, bulbs, jams, jellies, dairy products, meats, herbs and berries directly to the public. The Farmer’s Market & Beyond provides an opportunity to sell these unique, local goods.

Fresh Produce

We are actively seeking farmers and growers of fresh, local produce to join our farmers market anytime throughout the season.

Prepared or Processed Food

Food prepared or processed for resale in the State of North Dakota at the Farmers’ Market must comply with the North Dakota State University Food Safety Booklet.

Arts & Crafts

Items sold at the market must be made by the applicant. No imports or reselling is allowed.

Home-based Businesses

New! All home-based businesses are welcome. Please contact Kim Wangler at 433-5360 to reserve your days and times.

Food Vendors

If you would like to be a market food vendor, please contact us. This is a great fundraising opportunity for service groups in our area.

Booth Fee

Vendors are required to pay a booth fee each day they attend the market. These fees help cover the cost of advertising and other expenses. The fee is $15 per days. No power is available but generators are acceptable.

Non-Profit Organizations

Groups that focus on health, wellness, fitness and nutrition are always welcome to set up booths at no charge to help educate public on healthy lifestyles and promoting healthy communities.
