"The Sleeping Beauty"

Our Easter-time show this year is the classic "The Sleeping Beauty."

7 p.m. Friday, March 18
11 a.m. & 2 p.m. Saturday, March 19
2 p.m. Sunday, March 20
11 a.m. & 2 p.m. Saturday, March 26

 In our marionette version, an evil witch turns herself into a snow monster which the prince must vanquish in order to awaken the princess -- and change winter into spring.
Our good witch, Hazel Green, is in this tale, as well as our Six Dancing Witches, who, in the first scene, present the baby princess with seven good wishes. Butterflies, symbol of spring and new life, flit in and out of the story.
As always, children will get to see the puppets up close and personal, with plenty of photo ops, after the performance.

Even though this show is not an Easter story per se, the opera house will be decked out in a plethora of stuffed bunnies and baskets. We will also have a few hand-crafted bunny marionettes for sale.
