Westport Country Playhouse to Present SLEEPING BEAUTY DREAMS, 2/9
Westport Country Playhouse will continue its 2013-14 Family Festivities Series with a presentation of "Sleeping Beauty Dreams," a U.S. premiere co-commissioned with the Kennedy Center and Marionetas de la Esquina, on Sunday, February 9, at 1 and 4 p.m., recommended for age 5 and up. Tickets are $20. Running time is approximately one hour. Pre-show activities begin one hour before each performance at 12 p.m. and 3 p.m.
"Sleeping Beauty Dreams," a new work from the renowned Marionetas de la Esquina, reimagines the famous princess as an overprotected daughter looking for a way to break free of her castle walls in order to search for true love...and her true self. A contemporary take on this classic tale, Marionetas de la Esquina's humorous storytelling and whimsical puppetry awake this sleeping princess as never before.
Upcoming Family Festivities presentations include "Diary of a Worm, a Spider, and a Fly," on Sunday, March 9, and "Seussical," on Sunday, March 23.
In conjunction with the Family Festivities Series, The Playhouse will host a book collection of gently used and new children's books for Read to Grow, Inc.
