Project Y Theatre Company presents the World Premiere of Amina Henry’s Sleeping Beauty, a new female-forward version of the children’s classic, directed by Michole Biancosino as part of the fourth annual Women in Theatre Festival.

You know the old story: A beautiful princess (what’s her name?) is pricked by a spindle and cursed to sleep until awakened by the kiss of a prince (of course). This new take on a classic fairytale features a prince who prefers baking to waking sleeping beauties and a princess who likes fighting with swords rather than sitting pretty. Prince Rocky and his sister, Princess Jewel, set out on a quest to save the sleeping Princess Rosamond together.

Along the way they battle fire birds, trick a troll and meet other famous fairytale siblings. In Amina Henry’s feminist remaking of Sleeping Beauty, the power of love is tested and the bonds of friendship prove stronger than magic. With music, dancing, and singing.
