Los Altos Youth Theatre’s production of “Sleeping Beauty” is scheduled to run through Saturday at the Bus Barn Theater, 97 Hillview Ave.
Written by Charles Way, it’s a modern twist on the classic tale many remember – right through to the happily ever after. In between is a magical adventure, complete with troublesome fairies, a Spider King and a dashing sword fight.
The sassy title character is a smart and independent princess, Briar Rose. The girl’s best friend is Gryff, a half-dragon, half-man with big dreams. Then there’s Branwen, the friendly witch who tries to out-spell the evil witch Modron. And, of course, there’s a prince, hero-to-be Owain, who starts out as a bumbling klutz.
Directed by Jillian Toby-Cummings, the show is suitable for ages 4 and over. Audience members are encouraged to wear a princess dress, dragon suit or other royal wear.
Performances are scheduled 7:30 p.m. Friday and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children, students and seniors.
