This is a comedic retelling of the classic story with DANCE pieces included.
The Story of the Play
It is a retelling of the Grimm brother's tale and deals with the themes of friendship, faith and devotion to a cause, and shows revenge does not work.
The kingdom of Never Nod celebrates the birth of a princess and neglects to invite a reclusive "wise woman" to the event. As revenge, Evilena puts a deadly curse on the child. The others seek a means to reverse the curse, with limited success, and on her sixteenth birthday, the spell is put to work and the princess goes into an enchanted sleep. The neighbourhood Prince Charming rescues her and defeats the curse, and Evilena's conjured henchmen, the dark knight, the wall of thorns, and the false princess . The villain repents and decides to go into business selling ground beetle face powder.
We have worked to fill this witty production with comedy, cartoonish characters, and action.
