In a fanciful and far-off kingdom, the vengeful sorceress Magenta places a wicked curse on the beautiful Princess Amber.  Only a kiss from her one true love can unlock the spell and wake this Sleeping Beauty before it is too late. Will Prince Hunter overcome his fears as he scales the mountains, sails the dark sea and battles a dragon to prove his love to Princess Amber?  Children are invited to participate in the magic throughout this captivating and colorful fairy tale, featuring a soaring score and lively choreography.

Starring in SLEEPING BEAUTY will be a cast of Chicagoland all-stars, including Summer Naomi Smart as “Princess Amber”, Michael Aaron Lindner as “King Lapis”, Cathy Lord as “Magenta”, Anne Gunn as “Marigold”, Alex Goodrich as “Prince Hunter”, Jameson Cooper as “Topaz”, Kelly Anne Clark as “Periwinkle” and Dara Cameron as “Ruby”.
