TANGLEWOOD MARIONETTES/ SLEEPING BEAUTY
A charming tale which appeals especially to younger children, Sleeping Beauty begins in King Felix’s great hall where guests from across the land have gathered to celebrate the birth of Princess Aurora. The party goes awry when the wicked witch arrives and curses the baby princess. Will the curse come true? Will someone with a "true heart" appear? You will know when you see Tanglewood Marionettes’ presentation of this beloved classic.
In this retelling, a painted story book opens to reveal each scene. Beautifully hand-crafted marionettes are brought to life by a master puppeteer as the dramatic events unfold.
