The Merry Pranks of Tyll

developed from folklore

The Merry Pranks of Tyll was the Village Playhouse's 2002 traveling children's production. This show travels to various locations in the metropolitan area.  All shows are open to the public with tickets available at the door.  (At the Lakefront Festival of the Arts the performance is free with admission to the grounds) 

The playful, light-hearted Tyll eludes his parents and gains admittance to the King's palace, by way of the kitchen. Here he wins the friendship of the Cook, confounds the Wise Men, and charms the King and Queen. Skillful exposing all their pretensions through his pranks, he places the Wise Men in jeopardy, and fearful of his rising power, they lay a plot to dispose of him. But the wily Tyll escapes their clutches, and lives to twit the King and Queen into recognition of their own faults.
