It will all be there, just the way you remembered: The beautiful tale of the girl who pricks her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and doesn't die, but sleeps for a hundred years.
But we will put our own spin (can't resist the pun) on the classic fairy tale, “The Sleeping Beauty,” with an Easter-time marionette show featuring magical butterflies, dancing witches and an evil snow monster.
Princess Lily Dawn’s father tries to save her from one witch’s curse while a friendly witch (guess who?) tries to smooth things over. It seems as if winter will last for a hundred years, but spring will come, along with a brave prince who does battle against the snow monster. (See, guys, it's not just a show for the girls.)
