About the event
Tanglewood Marionettes’ production of Sleeping Beauty begins with a brief demonstration of the art of puppetry. Through humorous interplay, the audience will learn about various forms of puppets, from the simple glove puppet to the sophisticated marionette.
A classic tale which appeals to children of all ages, Sleeping Beauty begins in King Felix’s great hall with the celebration of Princess Aurora’s birth. The party
goes awry when the wicked witch arrives and curses Princess Aurora. Will the curse come true? Will someone with a “true heart” appear? You will know when you see Tanglewood Marionettes’ presentation of this best-loved tale. In this retelling, a painted story book opens to reveal each scene. Beautifully
hand-crafted marionettes are brought to life by a master puppeteer as the dramatic events unfold.
Sleeping Beauty is geared primarily toward children from pre-Kindergarten through Grade 2. The production is approximately 40 minutes in length, and includes the Puppetry Demonstration prior to the show, and a Question and Answer Session following the performance.
