Production Name

The Sleeping Beauty

Production Genre

Production Date


2006 February

A version of the time-honoured fairytale of the beautiful young princess who, cursed by the wicked fairy Carabosse, sleeps for a hundred years until awoken with a kiss by a handsome young prince. In most versions of The Sleeping Beauty the prince doesn't appear until halfway through Act ll but by means of a subtle dream sequence and Tickles', the court jester's time machine, the prince is introduced much earlier giving a better balance to casting and action.
