WORLD PREMIERE In this Panto spin on the classic tale of fairies, awakenings, and true love, a land made prosperous by its music industry is now in ruins. The King has banned all record players from Paoli Shoals to protect his daughter from an enchanted needle and the curse of the wicked Chanteuse. But on the dawn of Princess Aurora’s 16th birthday everything changes: the Moon falls out of the sky, true identities are revealed, and rock begins to roll throughout the kingdom. This celebration of the magic of music and finding your voice is pitch perfect for all ages.
Approximate run time is 2 hours including a 15-minute intermission. Best enjoyed by ages 5+
