Based on one of the most treasured Disney animated
films of all time, and featuring some of the world's most
memorable songs, Disney's Sleeping Beauty KIDS is pure,
delightful fun. It's Princess Aurora's sixteenth birthday,
and three fairies - Flora, Fauna and Merryweather - must
use their magic to save her from the spell of evil
sorceress Maleficent! The fairies ensure that Aurora only
falls into a deep sleep that can be ended with a kiss from
her betrothed, Prince Phillip. To prevent Phillip from
rescuing Aurora, Maleficent kidnaps and imprisons him.
The good fairies are the last hope to free Phillip so that
he can awaken Aurora. This classic fairy tale comes to
life in Disney's Sleeping Beauty KIDS, which features
many roles for a large chorus, from King Stefan and
Queen Stefanie's loyal subjects to Maleficent's slimy
goons, as well as other fairies and animals.
