Coronado Playhouse presents the musical version of the classic romantic fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty, with a decidedly modern twist, as part of our Summer of Love Series. With hallmarks of originality, charm and enchantment, "Sleeping Beauty or The Famous Rose Taboo" was originally presented Off-Broadway in 1965 at the Astor Place Playhouse.
It played an astonishingly long run for a young audiences musically, transporting a new generation to the miraculous kingdom of dreams-come-true. This classic tale of love is complete with a beautiful princess, a handsome prince, a good fairy godmother, a singing page, a bumbling fairy godfather, a mistake-prone king and his wiser queen. And, of course, there is a scary fairy – who sings that it’s very “unfair-y” that she has never been chosen to be a godmother.
"Sleeping Beauty or The Famous Rose Taboo" is the ultimate heart-warming tale of love conquering all. As adapted for the stage, with great warmth and more than a touch of hilarity, the hearts of children and adults alike will soar when Prince Charming magically awakens Princess Beauty from an awful spell, with true love’s kiss. Enjoy this treasure on stage at the beautiful Coronado Playhouse, the theatre on Glorietta bay!
Book and lyrics by Barbara Fried. Music by Norman Sachs.
