The Prince Street Players Version
A sleeping princess, a spellbound Prince and fairies galore are all part of this quirky adaptation of the popular tale.
Sleeping Beauty (Prince Street Players' Version) is yet another brilliant offering from Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy - the creative forces behind Prince Street Players, one of the pinnacles of Theatre for Young Audience companies.
Infuriated to not have received an invitation to the Royal Christening, the evil fairy Trollarina exacts her revenge on the royal family and her sister fairies by casting a spell on Princess Melisande. Sixteen years later, the Princess is sent into a decade long sleep after pricking her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel. Little does Trollarina realize, more than one spell is about to be broken thanks to the kiss of an amnestic, enchanted Faun.
A clever cultivation of production factors makes Sleeping Beauty (Prince Street Players' Version) ideal for any company that produces Theatre for Young Audiences: small cast size, minimal set requirements, and a modest score. As with all Prince Street Players' shows, the materials for Sleeping Beauty (Prince Street Players' Version) include spectacularly detailed costume designs, prop descriptions, and stage notes should they be needed by the creative team.

Originally approached by legendary author/director George Abbott to pen the score for The Pajama Game, Frank Loesser turned it down, but recommended his two protégés Richard Adler and Jerry Ross for the job.
