Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312
Performing at Broward Center for the Performing Arts - Amaturo Theater (Sep 15 - Sep 15)
A modern musical telling of a classic fairy tale, 'Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty!' invites us to participate in the creative reawakening of a young woman's psyche, asleep for more than a thousand years in an enchanted wood. Using song, imagery and movement, this princess' rebirth is the death of the damsel-in-distress archetype. With story by theatre-artist and musician Michelle Riu, live original music by the Gritty Girl Ensemble, set and costumes by visual artist Kristie Stephenson, and hand-drawn animations by Diego Romero, 'Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty!' is a tale of metamorphosis, intuition and communion that explores female empowerment, self-esteem and anti-bullying.
