Sleeping Beauty

SleepingBeauty_600Each holiday season the Globe Theatre presents a special family-friendly production that typically enjoys a longer run, and involves a bigger budget, than the rest of the main stage plays.

This year’s offering is an adaptation of the much-loved children’s fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. The story has been around since the 17th century, and early versions were documented by both the Brothers Grimm and French folklorist Charles Perreault.

The Globe’s presentation was penned by the theatre’s artistic director Ruth Smillie and is directed by Courtenay Dobbie. The play opens on Wednesday and is scheduled to run until Dec. 29. For ticket info visit the Globe website or call 306-525-6400.
