SLEEPING BEAUTY (article first published : 2006-06-23)

Once upon a time, in a kingdom far away, a beautiful princess was born ... a princess destined by a terrible curse to prick her finger on the spindle of a spinning wheel and become Sleeping Beauty.

The Actors Co-Operative is set to delight holiday audiences this mid-year season in Durban, with a colourful new dramatization for family audiences of The Sleeping Beauty, geared for the young and the young at heart.

Directed by Garth Anderson, this fresh new take on one of the world's best-loved fables showcases the talent of five gifted young actors: Rory Booth, Mihla Magagula, Raeesa Abdull-Karim, Eduan Bothma and Clinton Small. They have worked together to put their own imprint on the classic story of Princess Aurora and her prince, adapted from the Brothers Grimm.

The result is an irresistible entertainment package that includes daily performances of the show as well as children's competition give-away prizes and colouring-in activities before each performance.

The Sleeping Beauty will be presented at Durban's Botanic Gardens from June 26 to July 15 at the open-air Fairy Tale Theatre, close to the Tea Kiosk. Performances Mondays to Saturdays at 11h00 and audience members are encouraged to bring fold-up chairs and rugs. Tickets R30 (R25 children under 12). Bookings on 084 422 1422 or buy tickets at the venue.
