NARRATOR:  Once upon a time in a kingdom faraway there was a miller who was poor, but who had a beautiful daughter. The girl worked very hard, and her father wanted a better life for her. One day her father went to speak to the king.


FATHER:   I have a beautiful  daughter who can spin straw into gold.


KING:  I would like to see her.  If your daughter is as clever as you say, bring her tomorrow to my palace, and I will put her to the test.


NARRATOR:   When the girl came to the palace, he took her into a room which was full of straw and gave her a spinning-wheel.


KING:  Now get to work, and if by tomorrow morning you have not spun this straw into gold during the night, you and your father will be sent away from my kingdom.


NARRATOR:  Then he locked up the room, and left her alone.


GIRL: Oh, what am I going to do?.  I don`t how straw can be spun into gold!.


NARRATOR:  Then the door opened.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  Good evening, why are you crying?.


 GIRL:   I have to spin straw into gold, and I do not know how to do it.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  What will you give me if I do it for you?.


GIRL:   My necklace.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  I accept.  Give me your necklace.


NARRATOR:  Then he sat in front of the wheel, and whirr, whirr, whirr, three turns, and the reel was full, then he put another on, and whirr, whirr, whirr, three times round, and the second was full too. And so it went on until the morning, when all the straw was spun, and all the reels were full of gold.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  I have to go now since I already finished my work.  I will see you soon.


NARRATOR:  Then the King entered the room.


KING:  Oh!.  I am so surprised and delighted of your work, little gir!.  Now you will go to  another room full of straw and will keep spinning.


NARRATOR:  The girl didn`t know what to do, and started crying again.  Then Rumpelstiltskin appeared.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  What will you give me if I spin that straw into gold for you?.


GIRL:  The ring on my finger.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN: Give me your ring, and I’ll do the work for you.


NARRATOR:  Again the Rumpelstiltskin began to turn the wheel, and by morning had spun all the straw into glittering gold, and disappeared.  Then the King entered the room.


KING:  This is marvelous!.   Now you will go to a still larger room full of straw, and you must spin and spin the entire night, and if you succeed, you will be my wife.


NARRATOR:  When the girl was alone the Rumpelstiltskin came again for the third time.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN: What will you give me if I spin the straw for you this time also?.


GIRL: I have nothing left that I could give you.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  Then promise me, when you become queen, you will give me your first child.


GIRL:  I promise!.


NARRATOR:  Rumpelstiltskin once once more spun the straw into gold.  In the morning he disappeared again.  Then the King entered the room.


KING:  Very good.  Now you will be my wife.  You will become queen.


NARRATOR:  A year after, she brought a beautiful child into the world, and she forgot about the promise she made to the Rumpelstiltskin.  Suddenly he came into her room.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  Now give me what you promised.


GIRL: Oh no, I can not give you my son.  I offer you all the riches of the kingdom if you don`t take my son away from me.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  No, he is dearer to me than all the treasures in the world.


GIRL:  Please, no!.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  I will give you three days.  If by that time you find out my name, then  you will keep your child.


NARRATOR:  So the queen thought the whole night of all the names that she had ever heard.


GIRL:  What can his name be?.  I know, I will send a messenger over the country to find out for any other names that there might be.


NARRATOR:  When the Rumpelstiltskin came the next day, she said.


GIRL:  Mmm your name is Caspar.




GIRL: Melchior?.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  Of course not.


GIRL:  Then it`s  Balthazar.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  That is not my name.


NARRATOR: On the second day she asked around the neighborhood for names of the people there.  When Rumpelstiltskin came again, she said.


GIRL:  Perhaps your name is  Shortribs.




GIRL: Then it`s Sheepshanks.




GIRL:  Laceleg?.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  That is not my name.


NARRATOR:  On the third day the messenger came back again, and said.


MESSENGER:  I have not been able to find a single new name, but as I came to a high mountain at the end of the forest, there I saw a little house, and outside the house before the house a quite ridiculous little man was jumping, he hopped upon one leg, and shouted:



     Today I bake, tomorrow brew,

   the next I’ll have the young queen’s child.

  How glad am I that no one knew

  that Rumpelstiltskin is my name.


GIRL:  Oh this is great news.  Thank you!.


NARRATOR:  Rumpelstiltskin came that very same day to see the queen.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN: Now, my dear queen, what is my name?.


 GIRL:  Is your name Conrad?.




GIRL: How about Harry?.




GIRL:  Perhaps your name is Rumpelstiltskin?.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  Who told you that?. 


GIRL:  Now, you have to keep your promise.  I told you your name, you will not take my little son with you.


RUMPELSTILTSKIN:  Yes, my queen.


NARRATOR:  Rumpelstiltskin disappeared, and no one saw him again near the kingdom.
