A little red truck pulls into our town with everything it takes to mount a full-scale musical production . . . except the cast. That’s where the children of our community come in. The Missoula Children’s Theatre proudly presents an original musical version of Sleeping Beauty. A new princess is born, and from far and wide the people of the kingdom gather to celebrate. One simple mistake is made – an invitation is misplaced – and the wrath of the vicious Scarella falls upon the poor infant in the form of a spell. Sleeping Beauty is now destined to sleep for eternity if she should prick her finger on a spindle before she reaches her sixteenth birthday. Sleeping Beauty’s Fairy Godmothers do their best to amend the spell, but Scarella, with the help of some nasty Trolls, tricks Sleeping Beauty into pricking her finger and the spell takes effect. Five hundred years pass, and Sleeping Beauty wakes to find herself in a Rock ‘n Roll dream! Also featured in this production are the King and the Queen, Spot, the Fairies, the Palace Attendants, and the Caterpillars. SLEEPING BEAUTY–a Rock ‘n Roll Fable for the ages. This is definitely no sleeper!
