Disney’s Sleeping Beauty KIDS
The sleeping Disney princess, her fairy friends and her handsome prince face off against the evil Maleficent in this adaptation of the classic Disney animated film.
Based on one of the most treasured Disney animated films of all time, and featuring some of the world’s most memorable songs, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty KIDS is pure, delightful fun.
It’s Princess Aurora’s sixteenth birthday, and three fairies – Flora, Fauna and Merryweather – must use their magic to save her from the spell of the evil sorceress, Maleficent! The fairies ensure that Aurora only falls into a deep sleep that can be ended with a kiss from her betrothed, Prince Phillip. To prevent Phillip from rescuing Aurora, Maleficent kidnaps and imprisons him. The good fairies are the last hope to free Phillip so that he can awaken Aurora.
This classic fairy tale comes to life in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty KIDS, which features many roles for a large chorus, from King Stefan and Queen Stefanie’s loyal subjects to Maleficent’s slimy goons … as well as other fairies and animals.
