Following a brief demonstration of the art of puppetry, Tanglewood Marionettes will share their performance of Sleeping Beauty. 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 Marionette’s presentation of this best-loved tale. A painted story book opens to reveal each scene and beautifully hand-crafted marionettes are brought to live by a master puppeteer as the dramatic events unfold.
Video of this performance will posted to the Youth Services and Programs Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/FLPYouthServices/ and be available there for one week.
The Sundays on Stage series is made possible by funding from the Philadelphia City Institute Board of Managers.
