FIU Theatre presents: SLEEPING BEAUTY
by Rufus Norris, Guest Director Margaret M. Ledford
This adaptation of the classic fairy tale is a wildly irreverent treat that will delight children and grown-ups alike. It focuses on Goody, the fairy who puts the famous curse on Beauty. Yes, there is a princess who pricks her finger and falls into a magic sleep, but there is also a vicious ogre mother-in-law, and ungrateful queen, and, in the center of it all, a grumpy fairy whose magic comes with stinky gas.
WHEN: November 8-10 & 13–17, 2013 | Wed-Sat 8PM, Sun 2PM
