Sleeping Beauty: Stamford Pantomime Players on Thursday 27th - Monday 31st December 2018
When a new Princess is born to King Septimus and Queen Sybil the entire kingdom rejoices and celebrates with christening the child Aurora. The fairy queen along with her 3 fairy sisters, Moonbeam, Sunlight and Stardust, bestow on her, happiness, love and beauty. But just before the Fairy Queen could grant her gift, the evil Carabosse shows up and is very angry for not getting an invite to the celebrations, she cast’s an evil curse, that before the sun sets on her eighteenth birthday Aurora shall prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die. Carabosse is immediately banished from the kingdom. The Fairy Queen changes her gift and promises to watch over her and protect her from danger. The King orders every spinning wheel, in the kingdom, be destroyed.
18 years then passes and a young Prince Michael hear’s of a lady with rare beauty at the palace so he sets out to find who it is. Although he has to compete with other suitors, he finally wins Princess Aurora’s hand in marriage. But as promised by Carabosse on her 18th birthday Aurora pricks her finger and falls into a sleeping death. The Fairy Queen is summoned and changes the curse to not death but just in sleep until true loves kiss breaks the spell. The Fairy Queen then puts the whole kingdom to sleep for 100 years, except Prince Michael who she takes to her fairy kingdom where time stands still so he can return and wake his true love Aurora and marry her as intended.
