Sleeping Beauty


Sunday, April 22 at 3p

A classic tale which appeals to children of all ages, "Sleeping Beauty" begins in King Felix’s great hall for the christening of Princess Aurora. The party goes awry when the wicked witch arrives and curses Princess Aurora. Will the curse come true? Will someone with a “true heart” appear? You will know when you see Tanglewood Marionettes’ presentation of this best-loved tale.

In this retelling, a painted story book opens to reveal each scene. Beautifully hand-crafted marionettes are brought to life by a master puppeteer as the dramatic events unfold.

About Tanglewood Marionettes: Founded in 1993 by Anne Ware and Peter Schaefer, Tanglewood Marionettes is a nationally-touring marionette theater based in New England. Their repertoire consists primarily of classic tales performed by skilled puppeteers who have spent many years perfecting their art.

Tanglewood Marionettes have toured throughout the United States. Locally, they have performed at: The Children's Museum in Boston; The Puppet Showplace Theater in Brookline; The Boston Athenaeum; The Yale Art Gallery; First Night, Boston; The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum; and at fairs, schools, libraries, and art centers throughout New England.

Presented by the Firehouse Center for the Arts.
