Sleeping Beauty at Center for Puppetry Arts Sept. 26 - Oct. 7
A timeless classic and a chance to win a better night’s sleep
In a faraway land, long ago, there lived a king and his fair queen. Many years they had longed for a child, and finally their wish was granted. A daughter was born, and they called her Aurora.
WHAT: Sleeping Beauty by National Marionette Theatre at Center for Puppetry Arts.
Join hero Prince Stefan as he sets out to rescue the princess Aurora, and her family’s kingdom, asleep for almost one hundred years. Told from the prince's point of view, this adaptation of the much-loved fairy tale combines beautifully crafted marionettes with the timeless music from Tchaikovsky's ballet.
Patrons attending Sleeping Beauty are eligible for a dream come true in the form of a better night’s sleep. The Center for Puppetry Arts, the Mattress Firm, and Simmons are partnering to offer a new queen-sized Simmons’ Beautyrest mattress set to one lucky winner. Patrons of the show are automatically entered to win when they purchase their tickets.
