The Scottish Rite Theater Puts a Spin on a Classic Fairytale with Their Performance of Rap Unzel

Sure, you know about the classic fairytale Rapunzel, but this event puts a special twist on it like you have never seen before! In Rap Unzel, a young man shows his community and family how to express their uniqueness and joy in the face of adversity. See it for yourself this Saturday, February 9th at 11:00 a.m.

Reginald "Rap" Unzel III has a big imagination and an even bigger heart. His mother, intending to protect him from neighborhood bullies - and the world in general - keeps him inside his room. Audiences will be captivated as they watch the story unfold from outside of Rap's window. Rap Unzel tells a story of embracing our differences, letting our inner joy push past our fears, and creating a better world together.

Austin Scottish Rite Theater is an Austin gem – a fully operational modern theater thriving within a stunning historic landmark. SRT is Austin’s oldest theater, erected in 1871, the same year Austin became the capitol of Texas. For forty years it was a German opera house; then in 1914 it became the home of the Scottish Rite Masons who treasured the site and remain watchful tenants of the building.

In 2004 the Masons created the non-profit theater organization that exists today; nestled amid the State Capitol, University of Texas, and Austin’s museum district, we at Scottish Rite are dedicated to building community through the arts. We provide quality shows for all ages, with enriching programming for children. For almost a century and a half, innumerable artists and events of all kinds have graced our venue, from the operas and circus trapeze acts that wowed crowds during the 19th Century to the live world music and multimedia children’s programming that delight Austinites today.
