What do you do when your father claims you can spin straw into gold? If you're Jane, daughter of the town miller, you end up imprisoned in the castle tower by the King and told to prove it. Jane has three days and nights: If she can turn straw into gold, she gets to marry the Prince, but if she fails, she and her father will be locked up forever. Just as all seems lost, a magical man appears from the shadows, offering a terrible price. Will Jane find a way to free herself from this devil's bargain and claim her happily ever after in this musical adaptation of the fairy tale classic?
