The Greenwood Players Present Sleeping Beauty
The Greenwood Players are celebrating their 60th year of presenting well-crafted, entertaining stage productions. On November 29, they kick off their season with “Sleeping Beauty” which runs until December 3. It will be performed as a traditional pantomime complete with audience participation, quirky songs, and the ugliest “broad” you’ve ever seen! The cast and crew are busy working away at developing this wonderfully imaginative script into a polished production. Under the direction of the gifted Jeffery Pocock, whose set design is possibly his most elaborate to date, “Sleeping Beauty” takes on all the elements of the perfect fairy tale, sprinkled with comedy, scary bits, a beautiful love story, songs for everyone, and some truly unusual characters.
You will witness the christening of the infant Princess Aurora, where the good fairies bestow her with gifts; but the evil fairy, Maleﬁcent, places a curse on her to take effect on Aurora’s 18th birthday. What can the King and the court do to prevent the curse from coming true? Will Fairy Sweetheart’s creative plan work out and save the day or will Maleficent’s evil prevail? All young and young-at-heart are invited to join the Greenwood Players as they present their own twist on this timeless classic.
“Sleeping Beauty” runs Nov 29 to Dec 3 on the Greenwood Players stage at the AVM Morfee Centre (School Rd., Greenwood). The curtain goes up at 19:30. Tickets cost only $8 and are available at Pharmasave in Kingston and Middleton, the Greenwood Military Family Resource Centre reception desk, at the door, or by reservation (or for special needs) at 902-840-3853 or 902-802-0735.
