Bottle Tree Productions presents ‘Sleeping Beauty’ July 6th-17th Tuesdays to Saturdays
A beautiful princess, an evil fairy and an enchanted castle. Summer fun for the whole family!
Written by Charles Robertson with music and lyrics by Michael K Myers; the play is “funny and heartwarming” according to director Anne Marie Mortensen.
This version of the popular fairy tale tells how The King and Queen entrust Jack, the Royal Messenger, with some very important invitations for the christening of the royal princess, but Jack has made a big mistake; he has forgotten to invite the evil fairy Carabasse. Carabasse casts a spell on the princess which causes her to fall asleep for a hundred years. The palace and everyone in it is put into an enchanted sleep as well. Carabasse covers the palace with a menacing wall of thorns, and only the bravery of a King’s son can rescue the princess and everyone inside. Jack, the Princess, the fairies and a host of others tell this entertaining story in one act. Perfect for everyone who loves a happily ever after story.
The magic, music and fun stars Cassie Burrell as Sleeping Beauty, Alex Stein as the King, Allyson Foster as the Queen, Simon Derome as Jack, Hannah Smith as the evil fairy Carabasse, Josh Jia as the handsome princess, as well as Shannon Broekhoven, Michela Kaduck, Amanda Verner, Dana-Lynn Farrell, Cameron Hill-Watson, Brogan Chaput, Taylor Liggett, Katrina Pacheco, Victor Kaduck, Mallory Watson, Kendra Pacheco and Danielle Gervais.
