Sleeping Beauty awakens in Folsom
From Sutter Street Theatre
The Musical "Sleeping Beauty" opens Friday, February 20, at Sutter Street Theatre, Historic Folsom.
The emphasis is on comedy in this musical adaptation of the classic fairy tale. A delightful group of characters is assembled, so that young audiences as well as adults will find the show as enchanting as the magic in the story itself. There's Chester the Jester, Typsy the Gypsy and the Royal Magician, who is so inept he transforms himself into a frog. And there's the evil Thornberry, who puts the curse on Princess Elaine (the "sleeping beauty," and the brave Prince Dauntless, who battles the fire-breathing dragon to break the magic spell. Add ten tuneful songs to this zany story and you have a magical theatrical performance.
Sleeping Beauty will open on Saturday, Feb. 20, and run through Sunday, April 11, on Saturdays and Saturdays at 1:00 p.m. at Sutter Street Theatre, 717 Sutter Street, Historic Folsom, 95630. Reservations are recommended, and can be made by calling (916) 353-1001. Recommended for the entire family.
