This retelling of Sleeping Beauty originates from the well-loved fairy tale and maintains its major themes, but features a headstrong princess and added characters, including Gryff— half man half dragon—and the riddle-challenging Spider King. In this classic battle between good and evil, a terrible curse is put on a young princess, who falls into a 100-year sleep on her 16th birthday. The only one left awake is a prince who must conquer the forces of evil and restore happiness to the kingdom with true love’s kiss. Playmakers' rendition of Sleeping Beauty features new music by Chad Henry, bring this story of friendship and family, romance and adventure to life.
