Department of Theatre set for production of “Sleeping Beauty”

Once upon a time, in a land far away, the fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty” was born. Louisiana Tech University’s Department of Theatre is bringing the story to life and to the stage, January 26-31 in Howard Auditorium on the Louisiana Tech campus.

Howard Center for the Performing Arts

The curtain on James Barry’s wonderful story of action, adventure, hilarity, and true love, directed by Paul B. Crook, associate professor of theatre in Louisiana Tech’s School of the Performing Arts, will go up at 7:30 p.m. January 26-30, and 2:00 p.m. January 31.

Carabosse, the wicked witch, sentences the young Princess Aurora to death by spinning wheel, but the good fairies (the slim Fairy Liquid and the plump Fairy Cakes) commute this to a long boring sleep – a sleep from which the Princess can only be woken by a kiss from her true love. Featuring a loveable cast of characters, including a madcap nanny, wacky fairies, seriously challenged henchmen and of course, Princess Aurora herself, Barry’s adaptation of this classic tale will delight the entire family.

Tickets are $20 for general admission, $10 for students with student ID, $15 for youth under 14 years old and $15 for seniors 65 years old and over. The Royal Tea ticket package, which includes the show and your exclusive invitation for the Royal Tea event, is $35 for general admission, $15 for students with a student ID, $30 for youth under 14 years old, and $30 for seniors 65 years old and over.
