110816sleepingThe Spell of Sleeping Beauty, November 12th & 13th

“In the kingdom of Never Nod there’s celebration. A princess has been born to the King and Queen. Her name is Briar-Rose. Unfortunately, that nasty witch, Evilina, who lives in Tumbledown Castle with a giant spider for a companion, is not invited. She shows up anyway and pronounces her revenge. At age 16, the princess will cut her finger on a spinning wheel and fall into a deep sleep from which she’ll never awake. Some good witches counter the curse by saying the princess can be awakened by the kiss of true love. The King bans all spinning wheels. Evilina is not so easily defeated and, on that fateful birthday, the princess does, indeed, cut her finger on a spinning wheel. It’s up to Prince Alexander to come to Briar-Rose’s rescue — and the court’s too. They’re all asleep! The prince must fight a Wall of Thorns, a False Princess and, most frightening of all — the awesome Dark Knight! Schwartz Center for the Arts, Dover.
